From Academy Award-winning director, Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) and co-writer, and bestselling author, Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) comes a modern-day thriller set against a backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. Widows tells the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind as a result of their dead husbands’ criminal activities.
Set in contemporary Chicago, Widows stars Oscar-winning Viola Davis as Veronica, who, alongside Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo), decides to take fate into her own hands, by conspiring to forge a future – on their own terms.
Widows is film perfection, standing out as one of the most deliriously entertaining thrillers in years. A twist on the traditional heist movie, Widows is well-acted, beautifully shot and deliciously fun. But, above all else? It’s thematically powerful.
Based on the book, Widows, by Lynda La Plante.
