This image released by Paramount Pictures shows Denzel Washington, left, and Viola Davis in a scene from, "Fences." Adapting Wilson’s masterpiece has taken more than 30 years. Washington, who directed the film and starred on Broadway revival of “Fences” seven years ago, made some key decisions when he was first tapped to translate the play onto celluloid. He reunited five of the main actors; Viola Davis, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Russell Hornsby and Mykelti Williamson. (David Lee/Paramount Pictures via AP)
