FRUITVALE STATION is a US drama about the final 24 hours in the life of a young black man from the San Francisco Bay area.

Language

There are approximately fifty uses of strong language ('motherf**ker' and 'f**k'), as well as various uses of milder bad language, including 'asshole', 'bitch' and 'shit'. There are also a few uses of the term 'nigger', either in the lyrics of rap songs, or in peer-to-peer conversations between young black male friends.

Violence

Infrequent strong violence includes sight of a man being shot in the back. Almost immediately blood begins to collect around his mouth, before pooling on the ground by his head. A bloody bullet hole is seen in the victim's back when a paramedic cuts away his shirt.

Other issues include two scenes of cannabis joint smoking, and a scene showing cannabis being sold. In another scene a stray pitbull dog appears to be run over by a truck. A little blood is seen around the animal's muzzle. However, the shooting of the scene was monitored by the American Humane Association and no cruelty was employed.
