Film Friday: Fruitvale Station

Plot: Fruitvale Station is based on true events that occurred on New Year's Eve 2008 when 22 year old Oscar Grant was tragically shot by a police officer after riding the subway home after celebrating the New Year with friends in San Francisco.
Guest appearances: Oscar is played brilliantly by Michael B Jordan, who some may recognise from series 1 of The Wire. Octavia Spencer plays his mother.
Watch this if you're a fan of... Boyz N the Hood, Do the Right Thing which also expose police brutality.
Overall: Fruitvale Station was an excellent film which builds to a distressing climax, which is very hard to take in.
