Jennifer Hudson delivers a stunning performance as a mother struggling with addiction in this compelling film that follows a pair of young boys (Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon) in the Brooklyn projects who must use their wits and street smarts to survive after their hard-living mothers are arrested by the police, leaving them to survive alone for weeks after they dodge Child Protective Services. Co-starring Jordin Sparks, Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Anthony Mackie, the film's bonus DVD features include audio commentary, rehearsal footage, skateboard training footage and deleted scenes.
