Maverick bolsters Starr and her siblings in a new look at THE HATE U GIVE!
New footage from The Hate U Give is giving fans a deeper look into the Carter family dynamic, particularly the strength and vulnerability of Starr’s father, Maverick (Russell Hornsby).
The Hate U Give follows Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg), a 16-year-old who witnesses an unarmed friend named Khalil (Algee Smith) fatally shot by police and must find the best way to speak out about the incident while living two separate lives: One at her troubled but supportive neighborhood, one at her less understanding suburban prep school.
In the video posted on the film’s socials, Starr apologizes for speaking up about witnessing Khalil’s death and gets a surprising reaction from her father. He gathers his children, talks about how much they mean to him, and tells them the powerful meanings behind their names.
This is such a powerful scene in this very important movie and we can’t wait to see it play out on screen!
The Hate U Give hits theaters on October 19, 2018.
