No Superheroes In The Movie Fruitvale Station

If you’ve had it up to here with summertime superheroes, explosions, and special effects, and you’re hungry for a movie that tells a STORY, then Fruitvale Stationmight be the movie for you. See it and you’ll discover a newly minted 26 year old writer/director named Ryan Coogler, who has enormous potential and shows it in this – his first movie. The story details the last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Grant, 22, who was killed by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police on New Year’s Eve in 2008. Actor Michael B Jordan is brilliant in the role of a sometimes sweet, sometimes violent guy. All the actors are stellar. The human story behind the tragedy is somewhat idealized and forgiving, but it seems VERY real, and the movie has won all sorts of film festival awards. (Opens July 12)
