What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete is both wrenching and stunning. With heart-aching reality, it chronicles the lives of two kids who suffer from slipshod parenting and live in terrible circumstances. There's drug addiction (an adult shoots up right in front of her son and his friend), violence (children are assaulted, and a drug dealer rules the neighborhood with menace; though viewers don't see a lot of brutality, they feel it), and crushing neglect, all of which might prove intense and difficult to process for young teens and tweens. Expect strong, frequent swearing by both adults and kids (including plenty of "f--k"s and "s--t"s) and a scene that, though the participants aren't fully seen, depicts oral sex that's witnessed by a child.
