E’ il film di Roger Coogler, Fruitvale, acquistato dalla Weinstein Company la settimana scorsa, a vincere i due premi più importanti del Sundance Film Festival.
Il film interpretato da Michael B.Jordan si è aggiudicato sia il Grand Jury Prize sia il Dramatic Audience Award, mettendo d’accordo per una volta giuria e pubblico.
Fruitvale tells the story of the hours leading up to New Year’s Day in 2009, when the 22-year-old Oscar Grant was pulled off a rowdy BART train at the Fruitvale station and was shot in the back, dying from his wounds. However, cell phone footage captured the entire event, leading to the sentencing of Officer Mehserle to two years in prison.
La Giuria ha assegnato due premi speciali, per l’interpretazione a Miles Teller & Shailene Woodley in The Spectacular Now e per il Sound Design a Shane Carruth & Johnny Marshal, per Upstream Color.
