Winner of 28 awards including two 2013 Sundance Film Festival® awards, debut director Ryan Coogler’s 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 New Year’s resolutions.
Crossing paths with friends, family and strangers, Oscar’s day starts out well but he soon realises that changes are not going to come easily. Then suddenly, a truly devastating destiny befalls Oscar – transit police officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale Station. Oscar’s life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area – and the entire nation – to its very core.
Fruitvale Station will be available to own and rent on Blu-ray, DVD & digital from 12 March.
