Watch first trailer for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give

If a devastating reality check is what you're looking for in a movie, then The Hate U Give looks set to deliver just that.

(Luke Cage, Notorious) and stars Amandla Stenberg (Everything, Everything) as a young girl named Starr Carter who is constantly switching between two worlds: at home, she fits in with the poor, mostly black people of her family and neighborhood, and at her prep school she lives a different life alongside the rich, mostly white kids who are her schoomates. These opposites in her day-to-day prepare Starr for the fight ahead when her childhood friend Khalil is shot and killed by a cop after they get pulled over after a party.

Due to the pressure she was receiving from her community, Starr decides to stand up for what is right and becomes an activist.

Like the New York Times best-selling book, the trailer shows Starr trying to maintain a double life following the death of her friend.
