Here’s the latest poster for Sundance winner Fruitvale, featuring Michael B. Jordan on the cover.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, with Nina Yang Bongiovi and Forest Whitaker serving as producers, the film took home the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival as well as the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film. The cast also includes Octavia Spencer, Melonie Diaz, Ahna O’Reilly, Kevin Durand, and Chad Michael Murray.
Oscar Grant was a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who loved his friends, was generous to strangers, and had a hard time telling the truth to the mother of his beautiful daughter. He was scared and courageous and charming and raw, and as human as the community he was part of. That community paid attention to him, shouted on his behalf, and filmed him with their cell phones when BART officers, who were strong, intimidated, and acting in the way they thought they were supposed to behave around people like Oscar, shot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year’s Day in 2009.
The Weinstein Company picked up distribution rights for the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, and South Africa; and worldwide international sales rights for Coogler’s breakout film.
