A husband, father, brother and friend with the weight of the world on his shoulders (in his opinion). FENCES tells the story of a former Negro-league baseball player (Troy Maxson) and the characters that love and support him despite his faults and mistakes. Troy tries to give life lessons through stories, but sometimes he falls a little short. At the end of the day, he loves his family and they love and him.
“Some people build fences to keep people out, and other people build fences to keep people in“. The “fence” is important to the story line because it documents a journey, in my opinion.
All Star Cast
You can never go wrong with the cast of characters assembled for this film. Everyone from Denzel Washington (Troy – Perfection) to Viola Davis (Rose – Phenomenal) to Mykelti Williamson (Gabe– Wow,just Wow!) and everyone in between. I recognized all of the actors from other projects and was absolutely impressed with them and how they brought life to their characters to help tell the story. There is no denying the on-screen chemistry between all of the characters.
I Can Relate
Troy reminds me of my own father, very stern and focused, but loving just the same. He may not show his emotions the way others think he should, but he shows his love very similar to the way Troy shows love for his family. All that he wants is for his kids (and grand kids) to be better than he was and to show them that he wants to take care of them the best way he knows how. You can’t deny that is love!
