Notes: 
Storyline Heading
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.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is an extremely faithful screen version of August Wilson's celebrated play, and as such the film is fairly talky and static in terms of settings. That said, fans of the cast, most especially leads Denzel Washington (who also directed) and Viola Davis, will enjoy this major dramatic showcase. Adult subject matter and language make the film not for young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ... the film is brilliantly scripted and powerfully acted and deserves to be seen by all who care about great performances and emotional impact.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent 'Fences' is much more powerful for his devotion to his actors' craft.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good It's just one of the instances when the poetic force of Wilson's language and the dazzling acting duet of Washington and Davis create a movie experience you won't forget.

Rex Reed Full Review
Excellent ...the artists involved in bringing Fences to the screen conspire beautifully to make this one of the year's most intelligent and captivating films.
