Movie review: Fences

fencesPlaywright August Wilson gives us these rich characters and allows us to observe them in beautifully written dialogue filled with humor and occasional joy, but haunted by the past and life’s inequities and challenges. Fences is a 1987 Pulitzer Prize winning play and Director-Actor Denzel Washington uses the cast from the 2010 Broadway revival in this film version; all of them have lived in these roles for dozens of performances and there is real life in this production.
