FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Three years ago, a New York couple was enjoying a meal by the water at a South Florida restaurant when the man's wedding ring slipped off his finger, through the wooden floorboards, apparently lost forever.

Parents need to know that “The Hate U Give,” is based on Angie Thomas’ award-winning book about Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg), a black teen who witnesses the fatal police shooting of a close friend. Like the acclaimed novel, the movie deals frankly and powerfully with race and racism. It also addresses the tension between the police and the communities they’re supposed to serve and protect and the differences between teens growing up in predominantly African American neighborhoods and those from affluent white neighborhoods. Moments of violence are realistic and often upsetting: A cop shoots an unarmed teen (some blood is shown), gunshots break out at a party, characters brandish and fire guns and get into tense confrontation with the police, tear gas is deployed during a peaceful protest, two classmates push each other, a stepfather beats his stepson, a store is set on fire with people inside, and more. Language isn’t constant but includes one “f -- k,” a few uses of “s -- t,” etc. Teens talk about sex, but no more than kissing is shown; there’s also a little bit of drinking by both teens and adults, and characters discuss drug dealing. Families who watch will have plenty of big issues to discuss afterward; hopefully teens will also appreciate the movie’s messages about standing up for what you believe in, being proud of who you are, and communicating honestly with your parents and friends.
