Fruitvale Station

In Fruitvale Station, Spencer plays Wanda, the mother of Oscar Grant, a 22-year old Black man murdered in a San Francisco train station. Octavia is the emotional backbone of the film; both the matriarch and an endless source of strength for characters thrown into a tsunami of grief due to a senseless, tragic killing.
