Look for an Academy Award nomination for Viola Davis for an outstanding performance as Rose, the wife of Troy Maxson (Denzel Washington)...a man living with deep unhappiness and pain...that he takes out on his family...due to being unable to reach his dreams.
The script of "Fences"...based on August Wilson's caught between being a movie or a play.
It is filled with long character speeches...that feel like soliloquies...and create a disconnection between the characters.

Davis manages to make the words on the page seem real, and her performance is the reason for the extra ☆.

Viewers need to find some redeeming qualities in a character, and it is difficult with Troy Maxson.

Rated PG-13
2 hr. 13 min.
