Video Interview: Denzel Washington and Viola Davis on "Fences"

"Fences" has garnered four Oscar Nominations for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay (August Wilson), Best Actor (Denzel Washington) and Best Supporting Actress (Viola Davis). Based on Wilson's 1983 Pulitzer Prize winning play set in the 1950's powder keg of race relations, Washington (who played the lead role of Troy Maxson in the play's Broadway revival) not only brings the role to the screen, but also directs.

Film Journalist Katherine Tulich speaks with Washington and Viola Davis about bringing the play to the screen and their blistering performances.
