Den­zel Wash­ing­ton di­rects and stars in this adap­tion of Au­gust Wil­son’s award-win­ning play about for­mer base­ball player Troy Max­son (Den­zel Wash­ing­ton) whose dreams of join­ing the Ma­jor League were dashed be­cause of the colour of his skin. Bit­ter about his lost ca­reer, Troy takes his frus­tra­tions out on his wife Rose (Vi­ola Davis) and son Cory (Jo­van Adepo). Vi­ola Davis pre­vi­ously played Rose in the Broad­way re­vival of the play and her per­for­mance has lost none of its power. ✪✪✪✪✪
