Mom Loved ‘Fruitvale Station’

CINCINNATI—Saying that “oh, I just thought it was so powerful” and “Dad loved it too,” local mom Deborah Ward informed family sources this week that she loved the film Fruitvale Station. “It was so sad, but so, you know, well-made, and the acting was just—I mean, I cried,” said Ward of the film, which reenacts the final hours of 22-year-old Oscar Grant’s life before he was tragically killed by a BART police officer, and which the 57-year-old mother of two confirmed is “based on a real story that happened.” “And the main actor in it is just wonderful. He’s almost sort of like a young Denzel Washington type. He’s very handsome, too. You really feel bad for him and his daughter.” Ward added that “I’m seeing it again with Audrey on Friday.”
