The Hate U Give (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Amanda Stenberg plays Starr Carter, a teenager living a dual life between the majority-white prep school she goes to and the mostly-black neighbourhood she lives in.
When her friend Khalil is shot and killed by a cop, Starr has to find her place in the world and stand up for what she believes in. The soundtrack marks a new chapter in Dustin O’Halloran’s career (Marie Antoinette, Breath In, Lion). Here he is using slow piano pieces with violin and electronic sounds. The modular analog synth adds plenty of atmosphere, and highlights the movie’s hip-hop tracks.
