Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right.
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.Written by

The Hate U Give has been shot in Atlanta, a city very popular with cinema because it offers many different faces. It allowed George Tillman Jr. and his team to recreate the city of Jackson, Mississippi, where Angie located the action of her novel. See more »
When the girls were riding with King in his car, the speedometer and RPM tachometer were clearly visible in backseat view shots of King driving. The RPM tachometer would fluctuate up and down like normal driving, but the speedometer never went higher than zero to three MPH, clearly a sign that the actor was accelerating the gas pedal (while in neutral), but the car was being pulled or pushed for the interior shots.

An outstanding, thought provoking, emotional movie.
Wow. Where do I start?
I watch movie's of any type and genre If I think I will enjoy it and although (surprisingly) I had never heard of this film, it looked like one I might like. It had been on my planner for a couple of weeks and when I finally saw it I was blown away.
I am a white male from a poor but not impoverished back ground, I have not experienced any of the events in the film nor do I know anyone who has, but I felt as though I was living the life of the main protagonist.
The themes of unity and the situation of feeling like no one listens hit hard and the film worked wonderfully to illustrate how people at the bottom of the pile feel. Whether that be black, white or anything else. This film is not about one particular race over another it is purely about inequality in the structures around us..
I advise you give this film a watch and make up your own mind on what side of the fence you sit.
