Adapted by legendary writer August Wilson from his own renowned play, FENCES follows former Negro-league baseball player Troy Maxson (Washington) in 1950s Pittsburgh as he fights to provide for those he loves in a world that threatens to push him down. An unforgettable and timeless masterpiece, FENCES “connects with people on a deep, emotional level” (Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times) and pulses with the universal truths of love and forgiveness, despite what lies beyond your own fence.  

The FENCES Blu-ray Combo Pack includes over 30 minutes of fascinating bonus content. With interviews from the cast and crew, including actor/director Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, discover how August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play was adapted from stage to screen. Plus, visit the movie’s Pittsburgh set, learn how Davis prepared for her award-winning performance, and much more. 

Fences is a different style of movie, since it is based upon a play. The plot is slow to build, as you are introduced to these characters and learn more about them through their dialogue.  For some, it might be a little too slow and a lot of dialogue, but stick with it.

Denzel Washington plays Troy, a father who is tough and complex, and at times, you will probably hate him.  I was surprised by that, as most of the roles I have seen Denzel play, his characters are more likable. Troy says that he wants his son to be more than he was, but even though he might have good intentions, in actuality he is holding him back.   The film focuses a lot on the complexities of his marriage but also the strong effects he has on his children and his "old school" way of thinking regarding family roles.

His wife Rose, played by Viola Davis, is almost the complete opposite of her husband.  She is warm, understanding, and nurturing in a way that we all need mothers to be.  I don't want to give any spoilers, but wow, you'll be on a roller coaster of emotions along with poor Rose.  Viola Davis gives such an incredibly powerful performance in this movie, you might find yourself snot crying along with her.   Keep tissues nearby.  Definitely deserving of her Oscar win for Best Supporting actress!

On a family friendly scale, be warned: you will not want to watch this with little ones within earshot.  It contains language that is offensive and indicative of the time period.  It is more appropriate for older teens that can handle the content and more serious topics.

Fences is a thought provoking and emotionally stirring drama that will stick with you long after watching.
