[6.50/10] Fences (2016)

Fences (2016)

Quick Review: Being entirely, and utterly dialogue-driven, "Fences" is certainly a brilliantly-written film with a deliberate stageplay feel, though it's often so chatty, your brain might fail to catch up with all the talking. There's a big dramatic twist mid-way through that shakes the things a bit, but that aside it's an old-fashioned, albeit very relevant, domestic drama dealing with cheating, poverty, and oppression that benefits enormously from Washington and Davis' award-deserving performances.
