RATED PG-13

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean… From Executive Producer Russell Simmons and Director Jason Zeldes comes an award-winning documentary following Donté Clark, a young .poet transcending the violence in his hometown by writing about his experiences. Growing up in Richmond, California, a city haunted by a fatal turf war, Donté and the like-minded youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with the hope of starting a dialogue about violence in the city. Will Richmond crush Donté’s idealism? Or will Donté end Richmond’s cycle of trauma?

Electrifying performances from Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, and a stunning cast — enacting one of the great 20th century American plays — make Fences a must-see.

It will not come as a news flash that Mr. Washington is a movie star of the first rank… what he does here is both sizzling and subtle, a star performance that does equal justice to the play’s poetry and kitchen-sink reality.
Joe Morgenstern | Wall Street Journal | Full Review

Even as it properly foregrounds Wilson’s dialogue — few playwrights have approached his genius for turning workaday vernacular into poetry — Fences is much more than a filmed reading.
