Based on the best-selling novel by Angie Thomas, 'The Hate U Give' tells the story of Starr Carter, who lives in two worlds: the poor, black neighbourhood where she resides and the mostly white prep school she attends. This uneasy balance is shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood friend by a policeman. Facing pressures from all sides, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right.

The never ending problem - The Hate U Give review by Tony

Spoiler Alert

Saw this at an Unlimited screening at my local Cineworld. As it was a mystery screening the place was quite full. When the film started, I like most of the audience didn't have a clue what it was about. There were many walk outs in the early stage as it was very slow and the dialogue was hard to follow and understand. I was close to leaving myself but thought that as I'm here I'll give it a bit longer, and how glad I was I did. The second half really kicks in and is brilliant. The plot is cops persecuting the Afro Americans and shows what it is like today with a brilliant story-line leading it. Brilliant

Searing portrait of racial divide in US - The Hate U Give review by AB

Spoiler Alert

This is a terrific portrayal of the racial divide in the US. A young black female student called Starr, who goes to a mainly white school is the only witness to the shooting dead of her best male friend by a cop. This act unleashes collective fury in the black neighbourhood. Starr has to testify to a Grand Jury about what she saw. She mentions that her neighbourhood is plagued by a drug gang.

Some of Starr's friends, while purporting to be very liberal, make crass and insensitive remarks to her. Her white boyfriend, Chris, meanwhile genuinely loves Starr. The drug gang decide to punish Starr and her family for snitching. Here the film gets very tense indeed.

I found this film to be very well acted, and a fair and probably accurate portrayal of the racial divide in the US, and its consequences.
