This is based on the true story of Oscar Grant. This emotional film opens with some actual footage of the incident.

Oscar (Michael B. Jordan) is no saint. We discover he has done time. His relationship with his wife/gf (Melonie Diaz) is strained due to an infidelity. He has gone back to his old ways of dealing pot which has caused him to lose his job. Oscar also has good qualities. He is close to his family. He helps strangers and stray dogs. He recently dumped his baggie of pot as he has realized he was on the wrong path.

It is New Year's eve and his mother's (Octavia Spencer) birthday. Tonight he is going to celebrate with his wife as his life seems to becoming normal, but his prison past comes back to haunt him.

This is a dramatic representation of Oscar's life leading up to the Fruitvale Bart Station incident. I do not know how much outside of the incident is true. The film seems to place Oscar on the road to sainthood after a few stumbles, which set off my skeptic alarm. I would say some of the film was dramatic filler. Octavia Spencer gives us a great performance while the rest of the supporting cast was spotty. Oscar's life was fairly boring which in turn translated into numerous slow moments. This was apparently done by design so as to create the gut-wrenching sickening feeling at the climax.

The film was a winner at both Cannes and Sundance. Certainly worth watching for the politically active.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

This film spends a lot of time giving you the chance to get to know who Oscar was. Oscar is well portrayed and the film does not just tell you the good bits about Oscar but communicates the struggle he faces as a young black male in the USA. It isn't bleak there are some scenes with good humour that will make you smile.
Well worth watching and a film that makes a point about real lives being lost

A brilliant star turn from Michael B Jordan elevates this true and tragic tale of police brutality and really makes you care about the poor young man who fell victim to that injustice. A sad and truly moving character study and well worth repeated viewings.

Fact based drama about Oscar Grant 111, who was no angel as we learn early in the film.The film starts with actual footage taken on the night,Oscar has one daughter & up until two weeks ago a job,he also does a bit of drug dealing which is now helping put food on the table.
New years eve 2007 was spent in San Quentine,one year on & he spends the first part of the evening with family,his daughter is left with a friend.The plan is to go to Frisco to see in the new year,Oscar plans to drive but his mum persuades him to take the train.

I spent most of the film waiting for something to happen,as there seemed to be the constant feeling things were about to go very wrong.Fruitvale Station doesn't come into the film until near the end but for all & quite sad reasons.

A really good,well acted drama & under 90 minutes.

Missed this at the cinema, and why i dont know. This story of police brutality really hit me hard. Great perfomance by Michael B Jordan, and for anyone who doesnt know the story, a real eye opener.

A brilliant documentary style retelling of a 'true life' event. Showing police brutality at it's worst as we view the normality of a young black man before he fell victim.

Quite moving and a nice departure from the usual 'ghetto' rhetoric.

Rarely do you see the true life of a victim in a case like this: unsensational, real and normal. Incredibly thought-provoking and moving. And very timely with everything that's happening in the US right now...

A devastating film. An amazing debut from Ryan Coogler that worked in spite of what could have been serious obstacles.
Not only did I know the true story the film was based on, but the first two minutes of the film gives away much of the climax,
so I was very worried that I'd find it interesting, but not emotional.

Warning - some could consider the following to have vague spoilers;

But by filling the movie with rich, real, human characters who we get to know and care for, by casting and shooting the film
brilliantly, and filling it with all those little human details that make you feel like you're watching real people, knowing the outcome
didn't matter. By about a third of the way in I was hooked, and by the end I was in tears in a way no film has done to me in
a long while. It also manages the always tricky feat of being terribly sad without being depressing or nihilistic. Coogler treats
all his characters, even the 'villains' with grace and humanity. I can't wait to see what he does next.
