Gritty, hopeful but ultimately devastating

The impending sense of doom from the very start of "Fruitvale" makes this a very emotional ride, as you see the domino effect of how Oscar Grant III was unjustly killed in a train station on the first day of 2009. This extraordinary thing simply shows a day in the life of this man, not a hero, not a drug-selling crook, but an imperfect man, who truly loved his kid over everything. Expect a lot of Oscar love to come to this film, it's one of my favorites of the year so far.

Fruitvale Station is a very important Movie

Fruitvale station has great acting and a great story. The whole movie is very sad and extremely good. Fruitvale Station isn't a movie you should enjoy it is a movie that you should see and see how dark real life is. Fruitvale Station is one (and maybe the best) movie of the year.
