Fences (2016) (HNR)
Release Date: March 14, 2017.
"Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are triumphant."
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune.
Some people build fences to keep people out - and other people build fences to keep people in. Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Academy Award winner Viola Davis deliver the "performance-driven masterpiece" of the year in the film adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning play. Set in 1950s Pittsburgh, the film takes a passionate look at former Negro league baseball player Troy Maxson (Washington) as he fights to provide for those he loves in a world that threatens to push him down. Washington's directorial triumph "connects with people on a deep, emotional level" and pulses with the universal truths of love and forgiveness, despite what lies beyond your own fence. -- (C) Paramount Pictures, 2016, USA.
