Overview

From Academy Award-winning director Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave, Shame) and screenwriter Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) comes a shockingly tense, socially resonant renaissance for the well-worn heist genre. When a botched armed robbery leaves four thieves dead in a police shootout, their grieving widows — Veronica (Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) — are left with major debts from their spouses' criminal activities. In order to start a new life for themselves, the women join forces to pull off a final heist that their husbands had been planning.

★★★★★ "McQueen outguns Scorsese with a swaggering, supercharged crime epic."
— The Telegraph UK
"A big, pulpy crowd-pleaser with real meaning."
— The Atlantic
★★★★★ "Expertly plotted. It will remind you of how massively entertaining crime movies can be."
— Time Out

Why You Should See This Film

“All-star cast” is certainly a phase that gets thrown about with liberal abandon these days. Rest assured, Widows is the real deal. Joining the central trio, there’s Liam Neeson, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Jacki Weaver, Robert Duvall, Carrie Coon and Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry. Between its brilliant ensemble, whip-smart script and undeniable contemporary relevance, Widows is first-rate pulp fare brimming with uncommon intelligence.
