Fruitvale Station (Movie)

FrutivaleStationMain Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, Octava Spencer, Ariana Neal

Review: 9 out of 10 stars.

Not an easy film to watch. It’s emotional and difficult even only in the beginning it showed the actual cellphone footage and last quarter of the film it showed the Bart incident.

The premise is to “purge” people,  to release that suppression inside, to keep the society in order, and to only keep those who are likable.
