With nearly 30 films in the July calendar, I was thinking of making your life easier by sifting through the garbage and choosing the very best July movies for you to see this very American month. In my professional opinion, there are only 7 movies that have the substance and entertainment value for you to invest your money free of concern. I’m sure these selections will evoke sentiments of emotion, reflection and wonder.
7. Fruitvale Station (Drama, R, Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, Octavia Spencer) July 12th 2013
Plot: The true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident, who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family, and strangers on the last day of 2008 when cops made a mortal decision that rocked the San Francisco area and made national news.
Why you need to see it: Debuting to rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the gritty indie Fruitvale Station is already being talked about in Oscar conversations. Talk is The Weinstein Company fought hard to acquire it. I don’t blame them – its visceral last 30 minutes is powerful cinema. The rest of the movie has some true genuine, convincing and affecting acting from the whole cast. Get ready to see and hear more about this film come award season!
