Breathtaking work by perennially underrated co-star Russell Hornsby, and a reaffirmation of Amandla Stenberg's worth as an A-list star, The Hate U Give works best in the ensemble pieces celebrating the close-knit family at the story's center.
The movie is adapted from the young adult novel by Angie Thomas, and the tropes of that genre-a first-person narrative about finding oneself on the way to adulthood-allow it to strike boldly at the emotions that more detached grown-up dramas might avoid.
I had a very strong emotional reaction to this movie, which is as moving as anything I've seen this year. It packs a very strong emotional punch, by putting the viewer into a world which is way outside the comfort zone of most white people.
