 BE A MOVIE CRITIC - FREE MOVIE SCREENING

 Fruitvale Station

Synopsis: This is the true story of Oscar, 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, whose birthday falls on New Year’s Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend, who he hasn’t been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to T, their beautiful 4-year-old daughter. He starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easy. He crosses paths with friends, family, and strangers, each exchange showing us that there is much more to Oscar than meets the eye. But it would be his final encounter of the day, with police officers at the Fruitvale BART station that would shake the Bay Area to its very core, and cause the entire nation to be witnesses to the story of Oscar Grant.

    I didn't make it either, I was waiting for a friend and go there late at 7:15. I've been to the ikon before for screenings, you have to be there at least an hour before the show, and even earlier if its a more popular film.

    It was a mess for sure but I got in and got a pic! The wait was worth it. I highly recommend this film. The post Q&A with the actors and director gave a greater insight to the film which is so timely in wake of the Travon Martin murder trial.

      That's great, La Toya! What time did you arrive, to get in? I know Gofobo site says show up one hour or more before show time.
