First clip from The Hate U Give

Based on the bestselling Young Adult novel by Angie Thomas, upcoming drama The Hate U Give will premiere at this year’s London Film Festival (on 20th October) and is in UK and US cinemas from Monday 22nd October.

It’s the story of Starr, who is torn between two worlds – the poor, mostly black neighbourhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white prep school she attends. When Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer, she faces pressures from all sides and has to learn how to find her voice and stand up for what is right.

The movie stars Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Lamar Johnson, Common and Anthony Mackie and you can check out a clip from the movie below:
