Fences is based on the play of the same name by August Wilson, also starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in Tony Award-winning roles. It follows a Black family trying to navigate race relations in the 1950s. The film version looks to be just as good. There is already talk of Oscar buzz, and after watching the trailer, the buzz is well-deserved. Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself.
