Nominated for 4 Oscars, including BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR, BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS. Denzel Washington's FENCES tells the story of Troy, a retired pro baseball player turned waste collector struggling to navigate the racial tension of 1950s Pittsburgh, a troubled home life, and a strained relationship with his son, who wants nothing more than to play college football.
Directed by Washington and adapted from the Broadway play of the same name by August Wilson (which Washington starred in), FENCES is poised to be a legitimate Oscar contender and features supporting performances from Viola Davis, Mykelti Williamson, Stephen Henderson and Russell Hornsby. - Alamo Drafthouse
"It stands as an aching, lyrical, performance-driven masterpiece in its own right, a film so intense and engrossing that movie houses really should screen it with an intermission." - Village Voice
