      Fruitvale Station

      The true story of Oscar, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family and strangers on the last day of 2008. "Certainly one of the most relevant American films of the last ten years, its also raw and emotional and features an incredibly sexy and sorrowful performance by soon-to-be-breakout-star Michael B. Jordan." - Bruce Labruce, Grasshopper Film "Coogler weaves a comforting web of family around Grant, including his mother (Octavia Spencer) and grandmother (Marjorie Crump-Shears), to show all the more poignantly the intimate devastation wrought by his death. The movie is the model of decency and respect, and does honor to a life unjustly ended; it offers few surprises but is nonetheless shocking." - Richard Brody, New Yorker "{e_description}#x5b;The movies flaws{e_description}#x5d; dissipate by the time of the superbly staged platform incident, which is tense and genuinely upsetting, even though weve been fully prepared for it. An elegiac tone is subsequently fostered by Spencers moving performance in the ensuing hospital vigil scene." - Ashley Clark, Sight & Sound "Fruitvale Station is intimate in the best way, thanks largely to Jordans deft, responsive performance. Oscars last day is filled, as most peoples days are, not with big decisions but with small choices. If only hed done y and not z, would he be alive today? Fruitvale Station doesnt trade in those kinds of equations. Instead, by detailing Oscar Grants last hours, it suggests that his choices had very little to do with the way he died. But they had everything to do with the way he lived." - Village Voice
