From IMDb: “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.”

Poster Rating: C / C-

Review: (#1 & #2) More blank white backgrounds and while both designs use it, the first one at least tries to add some extra content to make it feel less overbearing.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: Another film that looks so much better in visuals than in print. This drama has a lot of socio-political heft to it and that only embellishes its narrative.

Oscar Prospects:

While the premise has potential, the Oscars haven’t yet shown a penchant for recognizing this type of film.
