This award-winning movie was produced and directed by Denzel Washington in 2016. It is based on the play by August Wilson. Washington plays the protagonist, Troy, and Viola Davis is Rose, his wife; both won awards including Oscar for Best Actress to Viola Davis. The story's many tensions are symbolized by the fence being built by Troy, who has had a lifetime of dealing with barriers to his dreams and ambitions, and who consequently finds he is separated from his fenced-in loved ones as well.
