Ryan Coogler’s compelling first feature is based on the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who was shot dead by police officers on December 31, 2008. It was awarded the Un Certain Regard - Avenir Prize at Cannes 2013.
'Fruitvale Station' focuses on that last – ordinary but fateful – day as Oscar crosses paths with family, friends and strangers.
One of the most talked-about American indies of 2014.
★★★★ "A bold act of imagination and compassion" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
★★★★ "Emotionally wrenching" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
