Rated: PG-13 Run time: 2 hours 18 minutes Stars: Jovan Adepo, Viola Davis, Stephen Mc Kinley Henderson, Russell Hornsby, Denzel Washington, Mykelti Williamson Director: Denzel Washington Troy Maxson smiles as he slings trash into the maw of the garbage truck he rides through the streets of Pittsburgh.
He smiles when he comes home to his adoring wife, Rose.
Washington and Davis both won Tony Awards playing their respective roles on Broadway in 2010, and their stage chemistry translates seamlessly to the screen.
Their affectionate moments as Troy and Rose have all the authenticity of a home movie; their occasional minor arguments entail the perfectly timed snaps and exquisitely aimed barbs any long-married couple will recognize.
Former Lake County Deputy Dean Zipes was subsequently let go April 21 in connection with the incident, WESH 2 News reported.
Denzel Washington has been subject to cheating rumors for years, but this may be a first for Paula Patton.
“They said I was pregnant with Denzel’s child, and people were calling my mother, saying I’m having his baby. People are going to talk no matter what.” For Denzel, the Sanaa Lathan situation could provide a blueprint for the current struggles. That’s what gives him strength, regardless if he misuses it. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.” With rumors of the Sanaa Lathan affair fresh in mind, Denzel again denies that he cheated on his wife.
Pauletta has been firm in her support of Denzel in the past, saying she accepts the good times along with the bad.
The rumors have recalled another reported instance of infidelity.
Denzel Washington got his feet wet on the set of his upcoming crime drama in Los Angeles Thursday.
The 62-year-old actor was smiling as cameras rolled during the seaside shoot, with a relaxed hairdo with a patterned merlot red shirt with black shorts with blue checker patterns. The charismatic entertainer seemed to get the chills as he waded up to his stomach in the Pacific Ocean, stopping by to chit-chat with an ice cream vendor at one point.
In the words of Maya Angelou (and 19th-century poet Paul Laurence Dunbar before her), Troy wears "the mask that grins and lies." Among its many blessings, the great miracle of Fences — the family drama based on August Wilson's 1985 Pulitzer-winning play — is how Denzel Washington (who also directs) transmits the pain and frustration of his character through one of Hollywood's most radiant smiles.
His Troy, wise beyond his years and eloquently cognizant of the injustices around him, is nevertheless no hero.
