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.
