Den­zel Wash­ing­ton and Vi­ola Davis

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Entertainment -

Based on Au­gust Wil­son’s Pulitzer Prize-win­ning play about the life of African-amer­i­can garbo Troy Max­son and his wife Rose in 1957 Pitts­burgh, Fences is pretty in­tense. Den­zel is charm­ing as rogue Troy – but it isn’t long be­fore your ad­mi­ra­tion turns sour as he re­veals him­self as a man drown­ing in self-pity. Rose’s anger un­leashed will leave you breath­less. WHERE TO WATCH IT In cine­mas now. WHO WILL LIKE IT Fans of gritty dra­mas with bite. WHAT THE STAR SAYS

Vi­ola Davis: “It’s spe­cial, but hav­ing been in many of [Au­gust’s] plays, it’s al­ways spe­cial.”

Vi­ola is hotly tipped for Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tress.
