Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature and the Audience Award for US dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, writer/director Ryan Coogler's debut feature Fruitvale Station follows the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan, Chronicle), a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer, The Help), whose birthday falls on New Year's Eve; being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz, Be Kind Rewind), who he hasn't been completely honest with as of late; and being a better father to Tatiana, their beautiful four year-old daughter. Crossing paths with friends, family, and strangers, Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year's Day. (Dir. by Ryan Coogler, 2013, USA, 85 mins., Rated R, Weinstein Company) Digital
