Call me crazy, but this looks like it could be the best crime movie since The Dark Knight. Or at the very least the most intriguing.
The latest from 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen may be a straight-up genre piece on the surface but, like director Christopher Nolan or Michael Mann (Heat), he can’t just leave it at that.
Widows is a dark caper about women who must pull off a heist to pay off the debts that their now-dead husbands failed to complete. With that kind of burden to carry and settle, Widows may even have a #MeToo tinge to it.
Whichever way he goes with it, McQueen will always have a more serious, deeper take on what most other filmmakers streamline into pure style. And I love it.
Starring Academy Award winner Viola Davis, the all-star cast also includes Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jacki Weaver, Jon Bernthal, Robert Duvall, and Liam Neeson. Widows opens on November 16, 2018.
