Singer slash actress Alicia Keys executive produced the inner-city coming of age film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete last year and if you missed it, you’re in luck.
The flick is now available on DVD and VOD and even has been praised by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, who held a screening in the White House at a discussion about education in America.
A moment which left Alicia understandably humbled.
Alicia tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “It really is rewarding to have the recognition of the film from the First Lady herself and for it to be a catalyst to a bigger conversation she’s starting about new ways to approach education. It’s truly inspiring.”
Catch The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete out on DVD and VOD now.
