Screen Seven – Fences

12th February 2018 - 8:00 pm

Troy Maxson once dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player, but was deemed too old when the major leagues began admitting black athletes. On the cusp of alleged greatness, Troy went to prison for 15 years for manslaughter, leaving a son, Lyons from a now-defunct relationship.

For the last 18 years, he has been shovelling complaints at his eternally tolerant wife Rose, and they’ve had their own son together, Cory, whose ambitions in American football Troy bullyingly disparages, predicting that the white establishment will thwart his dreams, too.

Troy has become an aggrieved garbage collector, working with a best friend, Bono, whom he met in prison. Bono is the only one with an inkling about the news Troy has, which he has yet to divulge to Rose, and which brings the whole film to a screeching, traumatic halt midway: a case of drama procrastinated until it can’t wait any longer, and socked to us all the more powerfully as a result.

Dir:  Denzel Washington, USA, 2016, 2hr 19min. PG-13.

Stars: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson
