Steve McQueen follows his Oscar winning 12 Years A Slave with a powerfully acted adaptation of Linda La Plante’s ground-breaking 80’s TV series. Relocating the story to contemporary Chicago, it follows four women who are left widowed when their husbands are killed in a botched robbery. With underworld debts to pay off, they plot a daring heist of their own. Playing as both a gripping crime thriller and a powerful expose social injustice and political corruption in modern America, Widows is a compelling story of desperate women pushed to desperate measures.
