"Fences" is a 2016 movie drirected by and starring Denzel Washington. The other lead actor is Viola Davis. Denzel and Viola played in this on Broadway. Viola won the best supporting actrees award for her role.. It's the story of Troy, an embittered sanitation worker in Pittsburgh in the mid 1950's. He was a former baseball player in the Negro Leagues who never got a shot in the Major Leagues. The film deals with the complicated family relationship he has with his wife and son, who is a gifted athlete who hopes to get a college scholarship. Brilliant acting by Denzel and Viola. I give it a 8/10.
