- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A young ex-con tries to get his life together to take care of his girlfriend and their 4-year-old daughter.
- Oscar Grant (MICHAEL B. JORDAN) is a 22-year-old Oakland man trying to find himself and right the ship of his life. Having recently lost his job at the local grocery store and needing money to support his girlfriend, Sophina (MELONIE DIAZ), and their 4-year-old daughter, Tatiana (ARIANA NEAL), he feels pressure to return to selling drugs, and even has a stash of marijuana for just that.
Yet, with a New Year's Eve birthday party that evening for his mom, Wanda (OCTAVIA SPENCER), on the agenda, he doesn't want to put her through the hell of him being a prison inmate like he was a few years earlier. With plans to go out after that party, Oscar hopes the new year will bring new promise to his life and his relationship with those he loves.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Those curious about the real-life story on which it's based (or the somewhat similar incident regarding Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman) might be interested. Younger kids won't.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For some violence, language throughout and some drug use.
