Writer-director Ryan Coogler's acclaimed, memorable drama is based on a true incident at a Los Angeles train station on New Year's Day 2009. A young father was shot by a transit officer, and the film details the hours leading up to the tragedy.
Michael B. Jordan plays the unarmed victim - whose fate was captured by other travelers on video - and Chad Michael Murray ("One Tree Hill") and Kevin Durand are cast as involved cops. "The Help" Oscar winner Octavia Spencer is a co-star and co-executive producer of the film. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; question-and-answer session with cast and filmmakers. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
