Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds — the poor, a mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, a mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.
I enjoyed this movie. Certain parts of the movies are extremely emotional. There are trigger warning in the movie. I do believe this is a movie that everyone should see the display of police brutality was done perfectly. The aftermath of police brutality and witnessing death was also done perfectly. The acting could have been better from certain actors. I also did not like the ending of the movie. but, I do agree with the story of the movie and I think the message of the movie will hit home for a lot of black families. overall, it is a decent movie but, for some reason, I was expecting more.
