Directed by two-time Oscar® winner Denzel Washington, and starring Washington and twice-nominated Viola Davis, Fences is adapted from the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award®-winning play by August Wilson. The film centers on the turbulent relationships of its central character Troy (played by Washington) with his family, friends and the world, a man who’s past disappointments influence his bond with his sons in particular. One of the most iconic plays in the history of American theatre comes to the screen. (USA, 2016)
