Denzel Washington's performance as Troy was memorable and impressive. He knows how to spot a good role. I suspect he may be nominated for an Oscar for this role. Viola Davis killed it as Rose, I'm sure she'll be nominated for an Oscar as well. The two of them together was on screen magic. She's an early 50's housewife that must manage a washed-up baseball dreaming, alcoholic, angry and bitter trash man husband with many issues. The rest of the cast is great. Everyone had a strong performance and those supporting roles were just as substantial as the leads. The actors and actresses fit the roles amazingly. I felt horrible for Mykelti Williamson's (best known for his role in Forest Gump) character, Gabriel. His time fighting in the army has left him mentally challenged and damaged. Hell, I felt bad for all of them. They were all in a bad way at one point or another in the film. There is heartache, anger, and a bit of healing that touch these characters.
