It’s a stirring call to action but also a tribute to a family’s bond. One to see at the cinema with your own teen. (Out now) 4 stars
A police officer kills teenage Starr’s friend, an unarmed young black man, in front of her eyes in topical new film The Hate U Give. Watch the trailer below.
Nothing for Starr (the riveting Amanda Stenberg, who played Rue in The Hunger Games), her loved ones or her neighbourhood will ever be the same. The Hate U Give tackles some of America’s big social issues while conveying the everyday details of youth with emotional immediacy, finely detailed psychology and humane spirit.
