The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete (2013)

The conversation about low income struggles that other movies started continues. I commend doing so with respect for the dignity of the Human Beings involved, especially children born into poverty and raised by drug- addicted parents.

What this movie has that most of its kind lack is empathy as opposed to pity. There are no easy solutions, nor is there a blanket resolution; any outcome will be bittersweet. But the resilience of certain people is demonstrated by the brave leader of a pair of abandoned buddies, who must grow up quickly as they’re forced to navigate the world without the aid of consistent provision or nurturing.
