There is something great about a "day in the life movie" done well. Fruitvale Station is Exhibit A.
Based on a true story leading up to the events involving Oscar Grant, Fruitvale Station is by no means a feel-good story. However, it accomplishes the very difficult task of creatively telling a story of one day in a man's life who is trying to make constructive decisions to rebuild himself. Fruitvale does this in an interesting and heartfelt way.
