This film adapted from Angela Thomas's best-selling novel, focusing on racial discrimination and police brutality. Starr Carter is a high school student of African-American origin. One night, after she was at the party, she was sent home by a friend, Khalil, and was intercepted by a white policeman. The Khalil who got off the car was unarmed. But it was shot and killed by the policeman. The matter quickly became a national headline, Khalil was described as "thugs, drug dealers", and the police did not seem to be interested in investigating. A group of protesters took to the streets to protest, and suddenly changed the neighborhood where Starr lived into a theater, and the only Starr who knew the truth tried to make Khalil innocent. . . In the movie, the black community where Starr lives and the campus dominated by white people have a great cultural difference, making the ethnic issues in the story more appealing. The problem of believing blacks being discriminated against by whites has always existed. Actress Amandla Stenberg has recently become famous and famous , and she has appeared on the big screen frequently, and the departmental dramas are all correct. This year alone, in addition to this excellent "The Hate U Give", there are "Where Hands Touch" and “The Darkest Minds” that was released earlier. From the beginning, Starr didn't want to get involved in the black protests because of the horror shadow of childhood. Later, because of the conscience, he found himself to come forward and justice for the dying friend. Amandla played it very well, her performance is almost perfect! And her family is all very cute & shinning, especially the "head of the family." The ending is very powerful. The black little brother not only let the people around the play settle, but also makes the audience outside the show stunned. To sum up, 1) White police should not be pre-emptive, impulsive to shoot 2) Black guys should not turn a blind eye to orders. The movie is not calling for revenge. On the contrary, it is to teach people to complain, and hatred is brought by you. It is your own decision! Recommended movie this week!

Excellent movie

This is one of the best movie talking about the race discrimination. The movie itself is quite neutral. It tells the suffer and misjudgment of the black but it is not criticizing the phenomenon. It lets the audience to judge themselves. Moreover, the movie is covered under some school romance and make the movie less suffering and heart broken.

A thought provoking movie

Story: 4 | Acting: 3 | Visual: 1 | Music: 5 | Overall: 4

Highlighting the inner racism that exists in all of us, it challenges our perception of skin colours. Good acting overall, but the best thing is the awesome soundtrack songs.
