Cinema214: The Hate U Give (PG-13, 133min)

Rated PG-13 and runs 133 minutes.

Starr Carter 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 at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.  Join us on Thursday, January 24 at 7 pm.

Refreshments will be served.
