2013 Guide Analysis: ""Notorious" and "Faster" helmer George Tillman Jr.'s latest effort is this unassuming indie coming of age tale about two young boys who have been separated from their mothers and are stuck facing a summer alone in the Brooklyn projects. Hiding from police and foraging for food, they soon learn they can only trust each other. Yet another film on this list scheduled to premiere at Sundance, there's some big names who have small roles here including Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Anthony Mackie and Jeffrey Wright."
