Fruitvale Station, the film about the 2008 killing of Oscar Grant by a police officer, opens in Chicago and several other cities this weekend. It stars Michael B. Jordan, who many of you will know as “Wallace” or “Vince Howard” depending on your fandom. The trailer will probably make you cry.
I have a ticket to the 11:15 am show at the AMC River East tomorrow, July 20. My plan is to see the show and then hop across the street to Fox & Obel to grab a bite. If you have some time free and want to join me, I’d sure love the company. I’ll be in the upstairs lobby between 10:45 and 11:00 am. After 11 just come grab a seat and find me afterward.
I really want this film to do well opening weekend, and I think we in the U.S.A. really need this story right now. I hope people will go this weekend, or whenever it opens near you.
