The royal flush of heist thrillers, Academy Award®-winning director Steve McQueen's (“12 Years a Slave”) brilliant direction with this star-studded cast masterfully sidesteps all the clichéd Hollywood trappings of action films in favour of a taut, Hithcockian storytelling.
A motley crew of four widows are forced into the ultimate heist when their ne'er do well husbands get killed in an elaborate robbery.
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. “Widows” also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.
Don't miss McQueen's Oscar winning 12 Years a Slave now showing at the cinema as well.
