As part of Indiewire’s ongoing Awards Season Spotlight, actor Michael B. Jordan discussed his role in Ryan Coogler’s “Fruitvale Station,” which has been scoring love from critics awards groups as a first-time feature, and for Jordan’s breakthrough performance.
The film centers on the last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Grant (played by Jordan), who was shot point-blank by an Oakland BART police officer in 2009. Jordan’s co-star Octavia Spencer told Indiewire:
“Michael’s performance is analogous of a master gemcutter
polishing a rare diamond, intensely focused and precise, resulting in an
exquisite and sparkling jewel. Working with him was truly a gift.”
