I saw it, so I understand. The gritty coming-of-age story about two inner city boys left to fend for themselves

over the summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities, left First Lady Michelle Obama in tears.

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, which came out on DVD yesterday, is a realistic depiction of how

impoverished children with absentee parents are forced to survive by any means necessary.

After screening the film at the White House on Jan. 15, the first lady told the audience of education

stakeholders, “I saw this movie this summer and I wept, like I know all of you all did, because you can’t help but

weep and laugh and look in horror and cheer for these two young kids. Because they represent all of our kids.”
