ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconWhat's presented here is good, and it's an important film to see for its coverage of the subject matter that unfortunately is still making headlines. But the overall offering didn't devastate or wow me as it has some of my contemporaries.

Tomatometer quote iconPassionate and powerfully acted, Fruitvale Station serves as a celebration of life, a condemnation of death, and a triumph for star Michael B. Jordan.
