About this Film

The Hate U Give

ODEON says...
The Hate U Give’ is the story of Starr Carter, whose life switches between two worlds: the mostly black neighbourhood where she lives and the mostly white school she attends.

But her life is shattered after her best friend is shot dead by a police officer. As outrage and fury explodes through her community, Starr is forced to stand up for what’s right and find her voice: she’s not going to let anybody make her be quiet.

A devastating drama based on the best-selling novel, ‘The Hate U Give’ stars Amandla Stenberg, Common and Anthony Mackie.

Brilliant Star

Reviewer: Saint2Date: 2018-11-01

A wonderful film, almost a Shakespearean tragedy - you know all the bad (****) that is going to and does happen and nothing can stop it. Except perhaps exceptional people - STAR. Made me weep. A truly great film and cast.

Very strong and moving roles and story. Great acting, powerful drama. Well worth watching

The Hate U Give

Reviewer: LemmaDate: 2018-10-29

Excellent thought provoking film.Well scripted and acted. Those of us in the UK can't even begin to understand the depth of the racial problems in the US.


Reviewer: LarineQDate: 2018-10-29

A gentle but powerful film (just like Starr's name). It is indeed thought-provoking and reveals deep and comprehensive insights into racial issues in American society. There are also some hilarious moments!
