In Theaters This Weekend: 'The Hate U Give' (VIDEO)
Check out the trailer for the riveting new film The Hate U Give starring Amandla Stenberg, Common, Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Algee Smith, Anthony Mackie and Russell Hornsby. It opens nationwide in theaters this weekend.
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 is directed by George Tillman.
