Fruitvale Station was easily one of the most talked-about films at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, landing distribution from The Weinstein Company in a heated bidding war between multiple studios, and taking home the Audience Award. Written and directed by 27-year-old filmmaker and Oakland native Ryan Coogler, this powerful drama is based on the true story of 22-year-old Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), who was tragically killed by a Bay Area transit cop on New Year's Eve 2008, which made headlines across the country. Fruitvale Station, which is currently playing in limited release and expands nationwide on July 26, tells the story of Oscar Grant's day before getting pulled off that train at Fruitvale Station. Todd Gilchrist recently sat down with Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, who plays Oscar's girlfriend Sophina, Octavia Spencer, who portrays Oscar's mother Wanda, and writer-director Ryan Coogler to discuss this remarkable story that may ride a wave of critical acclaim all the way to Oscar season next year.
