Directed by Denzel Washington from a screenplay by August Wilson, adapted from Wilson's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play.

Troy Maxson (Washington) is a garbage man by day and a Greek tragedy by night. Boisterous and hyper-talkative, his job renders him largely invisible to white society, but he’s impossible to miss at home, where his oversized personality fills every inch of the house he shares with Rose (Viola Davis), his stoic wife of 18 years. ‘Fences’ is a deeply affecting treatise on marriage, poverty and the struggles of sons to confront the long shadow of the man who brought them into this world.

You can see why Denzel Washington picked this project: this is essentially a transfer of the 2010 Broadway revival which won he and co-star Viola Davis Tony awards, and which she is almost guaranteed to convert into Oscar gold come February. With extraordinary performances, this is as faithful an adaptation as you can imagine.
