In "Fences," Denzel Washington and Viola Davis teach a master's level course on acting. Thanks to a wonderfully written script and a tremendous adaptation from stage to screen, the dialogue flows effortlessly, sweeping between each and every character on screen melding itself into the scenery. Hanging on every word, you follow along as one man tries to find himself in a changing world with which he is dissatisfied. The great conflict arises when the dutiful woman standing at his side is forced to negotiate the terms of the relationship. When the surprise comes, you are floored and left closely listening to every word uttered next. While I won't give away the ending, it will leave you wanting more and more movies like this soon to be revered film.
Be good to each other,
