Fences – (2016. USA. 2hrs, 13min. Directed by Denzel Washington.R.)
Denzel Washington directed and stars in this Oscar™-nominated film which is an adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The story centers on a black garbage collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh. Bitter that baseball’s color barrier was only broken after his own heyday in the Negro Leagues, Maxson is prone to taking out his frustrations on his loved ones. Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play with Davis also winning this year’s Best Supporting Actress Oscar™ for her performance. Stephen Henderson, Jovan Adepo, Russell Hornsby, and Mykelti Williamson round out the supporting cast.
