Decrease Increase Text size

On New Year’s Day 2009, 22-year-old Oscar Grant of Oakland got into a scuffle on the BART train. Transit police pulled him and several others off at Fruitvale Station. During the arrest, an officer fired a gun. Oscar Grant died.

Fruitvale Station recreates Grant's last day. Michael B. Jordan plays him as neither saint nor sinner.

Arch Campbell calls it one of the year’s best movies.
