Fences (12A)


From the archive

This film was last shown on 9 March 2017

Some people build fences to keep people out — and other people build fences to keep people in. Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Academy Award nominee Viola Davis deliver the “performance-driven masterpiece” of the year in the film adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Set in 1950s Pittsburgh, the film takes a passionate look at former Negro-league baseball player Troy Maxson (Washington) as he fights to provide for those he loves in a world that threatens to push him down. Washington's directorial triumph connects with people on a deep, emotional level and pulses with the universal truths of love and forgiveness, despite what lies beyond your own fence.
