Likely Oscar Contender!
Golden Globe Winner! Best Supporting Actress (Viola Davis)
Denzel Washington is a shoo-in for a Best Actor nomination for FENCES—and will very likely notch one too as the film’s director to go with its almost certain Best Picture nomination! Viola Davis, Washington’s co-star, is another likely acting nominee in this adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play. An African American father struggles with race relations in the United States while trying to raise his family in the 1950s and coming to terms with the events of his life. PG-13. 133 Min.
