The story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Set in a tumultuous contemporary Chicago, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar 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.
Deftly using his sublime ensemble, director Steve McQueen (Small Axe, 12 YEARS A SLAVE) flips the traditionally male-dominated genre on its head and brings his signature emotional gravity to this blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption.
