Such a great movie! This movie was so well done, although it was a bit slow at times. Everyone should see this film and unpack a lot of the still relevant storyline for themselves.

Good Movie. Shows a woman always making a sacrifice for a man's mistake. Sometimes men can be so selfish and expect a woman to be so forgiving. Good movie, but it made me realize and come to reality of why I'm single.

This is a movie that opens up truth behind many households and allows people to understand how your raised does have a major impact in not only your life, but also the kids life that you create as well. Love your woman especially one who sacrifies her own to hold you down b/c your life is her life.

The movie was good, the acting was great, authentic and deep. This was a feel good movie at times and sad at others. I recommend seeing this at least once. It gave me the feels at times.

Fences is a deeply affecting treatise on marriage, poverty and the struggles of sons to confront the long shadow of the man who brought them into this world.

Denzel Washington and Viola Davis know their parts here backward and forward, and they, along with the rest of the fine cast, bat a thousand, hitting both the humorous and serious notes. But with this comes a sense that all the conflicts, jokes and meanings are being smacked right on the nose in vivid close-ups, with nothing left to suggestion, implication and interpretation.

Can you tell it’s a play? Absolutely. Does that mean a damn thing? Not when the writing is this richly evocative, and the cast so often soars with it.
