Watch this Viola Davis double feature on her birthday

Happy Birthday, Viola Davis!  Yes, this Oscar-winning actress turns 55 years young on August 11, and she’s starred in countless films since 1996, including “Out of Sight” (1998), “Far From Heaven” (2002), “Doubt” (2008), “The Help” (2011), and “Suicide Squad” (2016).  To celebrate her birthday, we recommend this terrific Davis Double Feature!

In “Fences” (2016), Viola delivered an Oscar-gold performance as Rose Maxson, a wife and mom who is confronted head-on by her disconnected husband Troy (Denzel Washington).

When Veronica’s (Davis) husband (Liam Neeson) dies during a heist, it’s up to her to find some dough to pay off his creditors in “Widows” (2018).  She rounds up an all-female team in director Steve McQueen’s highly entertaining and nerve-racking thriller.
