THE HATE YOU GIVE at times feels like a YA version of CRASH #JustSayNo2CrashHating.

It is not simply a contrived story with racial tension, it’s also a meaningful cinematic journey that sheds a much needed light on what is wrong in America today told through the singular POV of an African American teenage girl.

It is an emotional gut-wrenching experience that is simply one of the best of the year.

PS: Don’t watch the trailer, which shows key moments in the film that don’t happen until the final scene -_-
