Plot

Starr Carter is a teenager who moves between two worlds: the neighborhood where she lives, a mostly formed for black people and poor neighborhood, and her high school, where she studies and it's mostly formed for white people. The mixture between these two types of life explodes when the girl witnesses the death of her best friend at the hands of a police officer. After this very fateful event, Starr must become a spokesperson and defend what he considers to be right and proper. The film stars Amandla Stenberg and features in its cast, among others, with K. J. Apa ('Riverdale') or Regina Hall ('Scary Movie'). The film is directed by George Tillman Jr., author of other works like 'Faster' or 'Notorious'.

Trivia The Hate U Give

The movie title and novel by Angie Thomas refers to the phrase THUG LIFE (The Hate U Give Little Infants Fucks Everybody) which means "The hate we impress in children will eventually destroy us". Amandla Stenber, the main character on 'The Hate U Give' is also a famous activist for black people rights. Also, we saw her in other movies like 'The Hunger Games' where she played Rue or 'The Darkest Minds' where she played Ruby. Kian Lawley was initially cast as Chris but was replaced by KJ Apa after videos surfaced on YouTube of Lawley using racially offensive slurs.
