It’s a movie in which three women, whose husbands all perished in a robbery gone wrong, band together to steal $5 million, even though none of them has the slightest experience at acting like a criminal.

“Widows,” adapted from a British TV crime drama that was first broadcast in 1983, has a script co-written by McQueen and the novelist and screenwriter Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl,” “Sharp Objects”), and it presents an enjoyably dark and sleazy vision of ordinary lives intertwining with the hurly-burly of street thuggery, local machine politics, and half a dozen other forms of daily corruption.

It is McQueen’s first feature film since the Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave.

Based on a UK TV series by crime writer Lynda La Plante it was co-written by McQueen and Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, and also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Jacki Weaver, Robert Duvall and Liam Neeson.

Movie about strong and smart women

Like the characters of F Gary Gray’s terrific 1996 thriller Set It Off, the heroines of McQueen’s movie are real women juggling everyday problems (debt, childcare, work, relationships) with their newfound lawless enterprise.

Michelle Rodriguez is smartly cast against type as dress-shop proprietor and mother Linda, who has yet to discover her own punchy power; Elizabeth Debicki is abused-wife Alice, finding her own voice after a lifetime of submissive subservience; and Cynthia Erivo (the best thing in the recently released Bad Times at the El Royale) is no-nonsense South Side single mum Belle, who becomes the team’s streetwise Baby Driver.

Check the fascinating trailer and you’ll definitely want to watch the movie:
