An African-American father struggles with race relations in the United States while trying to raise his family in the 1950s and coming to terms with the events of his life.
Drama - This is an extremely faithful screen version of August Wilson's
celebrated play, and as such the film is fairly talky and static in
terms of settings. That said, fans of the cast, most especially leads
Denzel Washington (who also directed) and Viola Davis, will enjoy
this major dramatic showcase. Adult subject matter and language make
the film not for young kids.

Rolling StoneFull Review Very Good It's just one of the instances when the poetic force of Wilson's language and the dazzling acting duet of Washington and Davis create a movie experience you won't forget.
Rex ReedFull Review Excellent ...the artists involved in bringing Fences to the screen conspire beautifully to make this one of the year's most intelligent and captivating films.
