Sometimes a film's tone prevents a whimsical opening; this is one of those times. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Liam, Ethan, and Georgia, as we're joined by BFF of the BFE Juleen as we head to Williamson & Garden Heights with The Hate U Give. We're discussing some big ideas and emotions in our 122nd episode (and our longest ever) as we discuss:

  • Where you might recognize this film's lead actress from
  • Which actor in this film was woefully miscast
  • How 'The Talk' has different meanings depending on your community
  • Which parts of the film maybe could have used a bit more nuance
  • Which parts of the film had tons of nuance
  • Does the film feel the need to pigeonhole themselves in for a 'happily ever after' ending that doesn't ring true
  • Ian dusts off his history degree and shares the tragic story of Emmett Till 
  • We welcome Juleen to run through why she chose this film and get her thoughts on the film and the issues we discussed overall
  • Whether or not The Hate U Give is the Best Film Ever.
