The Hate U Give, the film adaptation of Angie Thomas’ novel of the same name has us in our feelings after viewing the emotional trailer. Amandla Stenberg plays Starr Carter who lives a double life. When she’s at home in her Garden Heights neighborhood, she’s free to be herself. But she’s a different Starr when she goes to school at her predominantly white private school.
So the trailer starts off just showing a teenager trying to balance her life and figure out a way to be authentically her, but then it takes a turn when she’s hanging out with her friend Khalil and things go wrong during a traffic stop.
After the shooting, Starr has to make a choice to stay silent or use her voice to effect change and I got chills watching the rest of the trailer.
The film has an all-star cast including my girl Issa Rae, Regina Hall, Common, Sabrina Carpenter and KJ Apa who plays her boyfriend. KJ replaced Kian Lawley after a video surfaced showing Kian using racial slurs. When Kian was released from the role, He tweeted: “Words have power and can do damage. I own mine and I am sorry. I respect Fox’s decision to recast this role for The Hate U Give as it is an important story, and it would not be appropriate for me to be involved considering the actions of my past.”
The Hate U Give had already finished shooting when Kian was released, but FOX still was able to work with the situation. KJ darkened his hair and flew to Atlanta for a week to reshoot ALL of Kian’s scenes. The movie honestly looks so good and couldn’t come at a more appropriate time. Hopefully this will continue to elevate the conversation regarding the shooting of so many unarmed black men at the hands of police. The film is set to be released on October 19, 2018!
