'Fences' Review

Fences is -- and I hate this word -- a real powerhouse. Denzel Washington and Viola Davis take August Wilson's play and go to town on it. (Probably doesn't hurt that they both won Tonys for a recent Broadway revival of the show.) A potent tale of fathers, marriage and racism, Fences is capital-A acting done very well. My review is up at Screen International.
