The Hate U Give

Critics Consensus

Led by a breakout turn from Amandla Stenberg, the hard-hitting The Hate U Give emphatically proves the YA genre has room for much more than magic and romance.

Movie Info

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie and Issa Rae.

    Except for the loud and preachy ending, it was good.

    Perhaps the screenplay is a little to neat and tidy, but the movie has a lot of ground to cover. Ultimately it serves as a convincing rallying cry for the perspective audience.

    I truly enjoyed this film, it was great story that should be portrayed on screen more. The movie transcends its form and talks to you, meets you were you are with your own insecurities, beliefs, and standards no matter your background. congrats to everyone involved in this rare art, has been a pleasure partaking.
