Any film that comes out Sundance with hot pipping momentum like Fruitvale Station should never be ignored. And it winning both the Grand Jury and Audience award is no small feat. First time director Ryan Coogler presents a film based on a true story about a tragic New Year’s Day event involving Oscar Grant. Films like Little Miss Sunshine and Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station is primed for some awards recognition. Keep this film in the back of your mind when fall rolls around.
Fruitvale Station arrives in theaters in limited release on July 12th, 2013.
