Fences – Turning a play into a movie isn’t always easy and this one straddled the fence. Denzel was in a play while others were in a movie – there is a cadence to a play which he brought to the film, unmatched. It may be that as director, he would have been better served by having a his own director. Thankfully he was surrounded by a good cast and cinematographer. Viola deserves the accolades she is receiving. Not really date night material given the story line but a nice one to cozy up to at home.
