Director: George Tillman Jr.

Screenwriter: Michael Starrbury

Cast: Skylan Brooks, Ethan Dizon, Jennifer Hudson, Jordan Sparks, and Anthony Mackie, with Jeffrey Wright and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Official Synopsis: Separated from their mothers and facing a summer in the Brooklyn projects alone, two boys hide from police and forage for food, with only each other to trust. A story of salvation through friendship and two boys against the world.


It's always a treat to see young actors who can run a whole gamut of emotions. With the help of a stellar supporting cast, newcomers Skylan Brooks (Mister) and Ethan Dizon (Pete) are able to pull off both the comedic and emotional with ease. The chemistry between the two is built so naturally. Dizon has an amazing deadpan delivery, and I wouldn't be surprised if Brooks gets some well deserved awards buzz thrown his way.  

Story and Direction:

The film opens very strong. »
