Last night partnered with AMC Phipps Plaza, Allied Marketing and CodeBlack Entertainment for the Atlanta screening of “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete,” a film about two young boys left to fend for themselves after their mother (Jennifer Hudson) is arrested on drug charges. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Jordin Sparks and is the debut of Alicia Keys as executive producer on a major motion picture.

Jean Ross (WAOK-AM) greeted the audience and introduced the film. Mo Ivory (V-103 FM/The Ryan Cameron Morning Show) introduced Pastor Derrick Rice of Sankofa United Church of Christ who conducted a Q & A afterwards to discuss the issues in the film. Playwright Kenny Leon was also in the audience.

I thought the film was very necessary. Although adolescents Skylan Brooks (Mister) and Ethan Dizon (Pete) are the main focus of the film, it’s definitely not a movie you want to bring your children to. The language is pretty graphic and it may expose them to a few things you don’t want them to see. It had several hilarious lines delivered by the two kid stars. The film definitely had its sad moments because it reveals what’s really going on in America regarding drug addicted mothers and children who have to fend for themselves. You won’t leave sad and depressed because the ending is definitely worth seeing.

“The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete,” opens in theaters today! Check out the pics below of last nights screening.
