This critically acclaimed drama is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by August Wilson. It stars Denzel Washington - who also directed the movie - as Troy Maxson, a garbage collector in Pittsburg in the 1950s. In his youth, Maxson was a promising baseball player - but he was denied a career in Major League Baseball because he was too old after spending time in prison. Forced by circumstances to live a more modest life, Maxson provides for his family and meticulously keeps up his small brick house - but he can't quite shake what might have been. A quiet story told through masterful acting and dialogue, Fences is both an examination of race in America and a breathtaking character study of its complex, sometimes difficult-to-like protagonist.
