Does the director (George Tillman) want to make a hard-headed statement on the status of blacks in America or does he want to make a film that is a soggy mess about how people need to be nice to each other? if he wanted the former he would have cut the first 20 minutes and the last 10 minutes. It (just) might be good enough to serve as a 2 part episode in "The Wire" - a much better study on police, race, education, the black ghetto and drug dealing.

I was full-on crying for a good 3/4 of this movie. For context, I am a cold-hearted reader who rarely cries at anything. This movie makes your heart break for the injustice the characters have to live through every day, all the more poignant because it's many people's reality. It's not a comfortable movie to watch, but its message is necessary and important. And it's worth a watch for the wonderful portrayal of the characters, all of whom feel like real, relatable humans. I also loved the book version, and I think this adaptation absolutely nailed it.

POWERFUL, relevant, and enlightening.
I am just awed because it was too real.

It is a powerful movie about love, friendship, societal expectations, and the realities of growing up black in America. Starr's parents who clearly love each other and their children, strive to keep them safe and give them more opportunities in life by having them go to a local private catholic school which is located in a mostly white suburb, a sharp contrast from the inner city neighborhood where they live. The opening scene of "The Talk" about what to do when they encounter the police, is frightening and sets up the tragedy when Starr's friend does not follow those rules. Caught between drug gangs and police, both of which Starr has family, cause her to struggle to keep her school life and her home life separate and compartmentalized but grief, expectations and racism make it impossible. Easily the best movie I have seen in long time.

Great acting, storyline, and a powerful movie. It really depicts the complex issues behind the racial division in society.

I loved the book. The movie is even better. It is so moving. I can't imagine what it would be like to be constantly harassed because of the colour of my skin. This movie gives a pretty good hint from the perspective of youth. It is devastating to still hear accounts of black people being arrested, incarcerated and killed for no reason. We all need to stand up for humanity and default to kindness everyday, everywhere.

The 2018 movie, The Hate U Give is based on the 2017 novel by Angie Thomas. Having read the book and watched the film, I strongly believe that both are equally as moving and powerful. Amandla Stenberg really surprised me with how well she portrayed Starr. Her scenes were moving to a point where the ending left me with goosebumps. This film definitely pays a lot of attention to detail, and that doesn't go unnoticed. The stark colour change in between scenes, was a nice subtle detail to express the overall emotions that Starr was feeling. Overall, I truly enjoyed this movie and would definitely find myself watching it again. 5 Stars. @Ruby_Tuesday of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Movies often have a way of blurring lines of reality, but the beauty of this movie is how wholly it captures the truth. Racism. Without any shying away from the brutality of discrimination and what happens as a result of it. Starr Carter, our protagonist, embodies courage as she steps up to bat against the racists, the drug lords of her neighbourhood, and her own inner demons. What broke my heart was when she found out that she had to cut off her best friend due to her toxicity. All in all, I recommend this movie to everyone, who need a reminder that we can still improve life for all. @Siri of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This is a Great Movie. Great Story, Great Acting. It's about black, white relationships, police encounters, obtaining justice, It's about Real Life.

Starr Carter's world is blown apart after a late night with a friend turns deadly. Facing pressure from all sides to tell the story, Starr finds a way to live up to her name and honor her community and make her voice heard against police brutality.
