Nominated for four Oscars, Denzel Washington directed and stars in this adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which centres on a black garbage collector in 1950’s Pittsburgh. Troy Maxson (Washington) once dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player, but was deemed too old when the major leagues began admitting black athletes. Bitter over his missed opportunity, Troy creates further tension in his family when he squashes his son's chance to meet a college football recruiter.
