Denzel Washington and Viola Davis Swing for the Fences

dwvd

I almost can’t speak. There’s hardly a thing to say. There’s something about Denzel Washington and Viola Davis together that is pure magic; impossible to describe. Who cares if they’re Oscar contenders again this year; we already know they’re the best of the best.

Damn, when Viola says: “Well, I’ve been standing with you; I got eighteen years of my life to stand in the same spot as you ….”

Fences is based on the August Wilson play about a man making peace with his life and family, lost dreams and racial barriers, and the complicated relationships between the people he loves. Davis and Washington reprise their 2010 Tony-winning lead roles, and Denzel also directs; costarring Jovan Adepo, Stephen Henderson, Mykelti Williamson, Russell Hornsby, Saniyya Sidney. Fences opens Christmas Day.

    Fences is one of my favorite plays. August Wilson was my college mentor’s favorite playwright. She grew up in a very white area, became a Catholic nun, and had very little experience with Black Americans in real life. August Wilson was her entry to the Black experience. Her passion for August Wilson made a big impact.
