Widows (15)

2018 UK/USA directed by Steve McQueen, 129 minutes

Steve McQueen won the Turner prize in 1999 before turning his talents to film-making. He won a Best Picture Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe for 12 Years A Slave in 2014. Widows is a brutal heist thriller based on the 80’s TV series and not his usual genre. The action is moved from London to Chicago where four armed robbers are killed in a failed heist attempt, only to have their widows step up to finish the job. The gang’s leader Harry (Liam Neeson) was meticulous in keeping records of contacts, bribes and plans for future jobs. Viola Davis plays Veronica Rawlins, Harry’s widow, who finds his notebook and decides to continue his work.
