Fifth about The Seventh

Fruitvale Station

Fruitvale Station: well-grounded by two solid, modulated performances by Michael B. Jordan and Olivia Spencer, this is a sad, touching drama. The main character is well written, complex and flawed but undeserving of his fate. The story is a simple one, but going any further than it did would reduce its impact. Shot simply and effectively, one good example of the story justifying the style. As it’s usually the case with reality-based tales, how accurate a portrait of the actual story is fruit of long discussion, but also irrelevant to how effective the film is for what it is: a work of fact-based fiction.
