Film: "The Hate U Give"

This smart, entertaining adaptation of the YA bestseller centers on Starr (Amandla Stenberg), a girl caught between two worlds who finds her voice.

Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg) lives between two worlds: the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives with her family (Regina Hall, Nicholas Hornsby) and the rich, mostly white prep school she attends. Code-switching is exhausting work.

But when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend by a police officer, Starr must confront the pressures from all sides of the community, find her voice and stand up for what’s right. Based on Angie Thomas’s acclaimed YA bestseller, an entertaining and smart teen drama that navigates the dangerous, uneven terrain of racially divided America without compromising the complexity of the issues raised.
