“The emotional impact of “Fruitvale Station” cannot be overstated. Without ever being forced or false, and with an amazingly honest eye and ear for detail, writer-director Ryan Coogler’s drama about a young man’s final hours is one of the most extraordinary films you’ll see this year.”
–New York Daily News

“Fruitvale Station” is the true story of 22-year-old Oscar Grant, who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother, whose birthday falls on New Year’s Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend, who he hasn’t been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to T, their beautiful 4 year old daughter. He starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easy. The day ends with events on the Fruitvale Station train platform that shook the San Francisco Bay Area to its core.
