Fruitvale Station (2013)

Wow.  Just wow.  Fruitvale Station, which is based on a true story, is about how a Oakland man (Michael B. Jordan) is shot at a subway station on New Years.  Octavia Spencer also did a spectacular job as portraying Jordan’s mother.  It was such an interesting story, and told a lot more background information about Jordan’s character that helped create such emotion in the final scenes.  This movie also had the racial charge similar to Crash.  It is an intense movie, but also only an hour and a half long.  I am hoping that this will receive some Oscar buzz, because it truly deserves it.

4 out of 5 stars
