Fences is an upcoming drama set in 1950s Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, starring Denzel Washington as a father working as a waste collector and struggling to raise his family and come to terms with the events of his life.
Based on August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning play of the same name, the film is directed by Denzel Washington himself and stars also Viola Davis, Jovan Adep, Mykelti Williamson, Stephen Henderson and others.
The official trailer features Washington answering to his son, when asked why he doesn’t like him, that there isn’t a law forcing him to like the boy. “You eat every day? You have a roof over your head? You have clothes on your back? Why you think that is?” – asks Washington.
Fences is scheduled to be released on December 25.
