Academy Award® winner Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, and Cynthia Erivo in Widows.




Four women, a heist, and one hell of a ride! Widows is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Academy Award winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.

Widows also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry. The blistering modern-day thriller is directed by Academy Award winner Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) and co-written by bestselling author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl).
