Directed by George Tillman, The Hate U Give follows Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg) who is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil by a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.

Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Common, Anthony Mackie, and Russell Hornsby round out the cast.

“The Hate U Give” opens in theaters October 19.
