Fences

Denzel Washington directs this version of the award-winning play by black American writer August Wilson. It retains the look and feel of a play; Washington avoids cinematic devices and gives Wilson’s rich dialogue centre-stage.

Washington and Viola Davis give towering performances in a study of racial prejudice, father-and-son rivalry, parental responsibility, and the way experience shapes and warps all of us.
