Ok, I know I'm pretty late on this but I have been meaning to see Fruitvale Station and I haven't seen it yet. I've heard nothing but positive reviews and warnings that the movie is an emotional rollercoaster. Whether you are lagging like me or want to see it again, we'll meet up next Wednesday night to watch the movie.
About the movie: FRUITVALE STATION follows the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), 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 (Octavia Spencer), whose birthday falls on New Year’s Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz), who he hasn’t been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter. Crossing paths with friends, family, and strangers, Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year’s Day. Oscar’s life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area – and the entire nation – to its very core
About the meetup: The movie starts at 7:25 at Camera 12 in downtown San Jose. Let's start gathering there at 7:00 so we can do some quick intros and get good seats.
I hope to see you there!
