The Hate U Give is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and Directed by George Tillman, Jr. The film’s protagonist, 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.
