The Guardian

Nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture & Best Actor.

Denzel Washington directs and stars in this long-awaited film adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which centres on a black refuse collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh.

The film see’s Maxson stuggle to control the bitterness and anger he feels about his struggle growing up as a black man, only made worse when his son gets a huge opportunity to succeed where Maxson failed. Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis (The Help) won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play, and they look set to be major contenders for this year’s Oscars as well, giving two electrifying performances.
