On this week’s episode, I was joined by Matt Keeler and Kyllian Harper to discuss Steve McQueen’s latest work, Widows.

Set in Chicago, this story revolves around four women whose husbands died while completing a heist. Veronica Rawlings (Viola Davis) finds plans for another heist her husband (Liam Neeson) had in the works. To pay off a debt he left behind, Rawlings gets the other grieving widows on board and decides to go through with the heist herself.

Based on the 1983 TV mini-series, Widows offers thrills, beautiful cinematography, and plenty of twists.

Among other things, we discussed the film’s complex plot, pros and cons, and gave it a score out of ten.
