(2013) dir Ryan Coogler w/Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, Octavia Spencer, Ariana Neal [85 min]
Considered by many to be a good bet for a Best Actor Oscar nomination, Michael B. Jordan plays Oscar Grant, 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 resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Spencer), being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Diaz), and being a better father to Tatiana (Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter. Crossing paths with friends, family and strangers, Oscar’s day starts out well, but takes a tragic turn, however, and he winds up shot dead at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year’s Day.
