George Tillman’s upcoming film, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete has already developed Oscar buzz thanks to the performances by an incredible cast.

Jennifer Hudson, who plays a drug addicted mother steps it up in this drama, diving right into the role of a junkie who leaves her son behind for an entire summer. But it’s the performances by Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon who play Mister and Pete that critics are really praising.

HipHollywood was on red carpet during the Los Angeles premiere of the film where we caught up with cast and crew, including Jordin Sparks who raved about her two young co-stars.

“You have to look out for these boys. They’re absolutely incredible. I learned so much from them, and it was amazing to work with them,” she said.

Director George Tillman also shared with HipHollywood how incredible the young boys are. “These kids were great because they were real serious about their craft. I’m really proud of their performances, they killed it in the movie and you believe them one hundred percent all the way through,” Tillman explained.

The boys were full of life during the premiere, smiling from ear to ear as they talked about their characters in the film“I play Pete in the movie, and he’s kind of shy and smart like me, and he asks a lot of questions. He really bonds with Mister when he finds someone he could trust. He just wants to be loved,” Ethan explained.

“I play Mister. I’m an aspiring actor, I want to become an actor and leave the projects and become something of myself,” Skylan said. He added, “Working with Jennifer, it was amazing. She was really in her character, so we didn’t really have a chance to talk a lot on on one.”
