Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 05/23/2013
"[D]ebuting director Ryan Coogler creates a bruising masterpiece."
Wall Street Journal - 07/11/2013
"FRUITVALE STATION is a directorial debut of limitless promise; as a first feature it's almost miraculous."
USA Today - 07/11/2013
4 stars out of 4 -- "FRUITVALE STATION is a profoundly compelling, gut-wrenching and important film."
Los Angeles Times - 07/11/2013
"Made with assurance and deep emotion, FRUITVALE STATION is more than a remarkable directing debut for 26-year-old Ryan Coogler. It's an outstanding film by any standard."
New York Times - 07/12/2013
"[A] powerful and sensitive debut feature....Everything it has to say about class, masculinity and the tricky relations among different kinds of people in a proudly diverse and liberal metropolis is embedded in details of character and place."
RogerEbert.com - 07/11/2013
4 stars out of 4 -- "FRUITVALE STATION is about what we can imagine when we cast our gaze across the longstanding divides in this persistently, cancerously segregated American society."
A.V. Club - 07/11/2013
"[Jordan] is, unquestionably, the film's greatest asset....The actor relocates some of the gravity of his devastating arc on 'The Wire'..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/12/2013
"Jordan's performance is grippingly subtle....It's great political filmmaking, period." -- Grade: A
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/18/2013
"The intimacy of debut writer-director Ryan Coogler's approach to the film and the no-frills, believably real quality of the main performances combine to drive the senselessness of Oscar's killing home with visceral impact."

Product Description:

Filmmaker Ryan Coogler makes his feature directorial debut with this drama centered on the tragic shooting of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), a vibrant 22-year-old Bay Area father who was senselessly gunned down by BART officers on New Year's Day in 2009, and whose murder sent shockwaves through the nation after being captured on camera by his fellow passengers. Octavia L. Spencer, Melonie Diaz, and Kevin Durand co-star.
