This movie addresses what really happened in the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2009, when 22-year-old Oscar Grant from the Oakland Bay Area was shot in cold blood by a police officer at the Fruitvale BART station.

Director Ryan Coogler makes an extraordinary directorial debut with this soulful account of the real-life event that horrified the nation. With brilliant performance by Octavia Spencer (Oscar winner, The Help), Melonie Diaz and Michael B. Jordan as Grant, a young man whose eyes were an open window into his soul. Fruitvale offers a barometer reading on the state of humanity in American society today.
