A movie that is being raved about by the likes of Ik Ogbonna, Idia Aisien, Alex Ekubo, Teni The Entertainer, Juliet Ibrahim, Lilian Afegbai, after attending the premier night in Nigeria, it is safe to say that ‘Widows The Movie’ is a must watch!
Not just ex-wives or decoys, the ‘widows’ characterised in the movie are carefully constructed personalities with wildly disparate backgrounds and are played by a powerhouse ensemble comprised of Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki and Cynthia Erivo.
As Davis declares in the trailer, “The best thing we have going for us is being who we are… because no one thinks we have the balls to pull this off.” Underneath the heist plot, the film paints a much more layered portrait of Chicago, where class, race, gender, age and politics rub up against each other in complicated ways, it is gripping! The movie is tough, raw and extremely entertaining. So, are you in or out?
A police shootout leaves four thieves dead during an explosive armed robbery attempt in Chicago. Their widows — Veronica, Linda, Alice and Belle — have nothing in common except a debt left behind by their spouses’ criminal activities. Hoping to forge a future on their own terms, Veronica joins forces with the other three women to pull off a heist that her husband was planning.
Watch the trailer and let us know if it’s a ‘Yay’ or ‘Nay’ for you!
