In The Hate U Give, Amandla Stenberg (Hunger Games) is Starr Carter, a high school girl who tries to balance a life lived between two different 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. Facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.
Directed by George Tillman, Jr, The Hate U Give is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling novel by Angie Thomas. Also starring Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, Common, and Anthony Mackie.
