The Oath & Hate U Give

Post by ProfessorX »

Just in time for Thanksgiving. The Oath.

It is a comedy - but the premise is, in it own way, seriously relevant. For anybody paying attention. (i.e. "Standing for the Pledge").

[from Wiki]
In a dystopian future, people across America are required to sign “The Patriot’s Oath”, a controversial political document, to the U.S. president by Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, a young couple host a Thanksgiving dinner in which political discussion among their family about the Oath erupts into violence and mayhem.

BTW: already out in theaters, "The Hate U Give". I believe I've mentioned this film before. A powerful story.

Yep, this is "ripped right from the headlines" of some of the stuff we've been discussing here.
