Fruitvale Station is the story of the last day of Oscar Grant (killed by transit police in Oakland, California.) On Wednesday,December 31st 2008, twenty-two year old Oscar, “a many-sided protagonist, neither saint nor unalloyed sinner” (Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune) interacts with family, friends, and enemies. The VIllage Voice says that debut director Ryan Coogler, “---dramatizes Oscar's last day by choosing not to dramatize it . . . .  And yet because we know how this story will end, there's a shivery, understated tension running beneath.” Fruitvale won awards at both the Cannes and Sundance film festivals in 2013.


Fruitvale Station runs 85 minutes and is in English. This movie is rated R for some violence, language throughout and some drug use.
