Fences Film With four Oscar nominations, including Best Actor for Denzel Washington and Best Supporting Actress for Viola Davis, Fences is one of 2017’s must-see movies. Set in the 1950s, it follows Troy Maxson – a sanitation worker who once dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player but was deemed too old when the major leagues started admitting black athletes. Still bitter over his crushed dreams, Troy creates further tension in his family when he quashes his son’s chance to meet with a college football recruiter. Based on the Pulitzer-winning play by the August Wilson, Fences is sure to leave you moved and inspired.
