Wednesday 28th August 2019 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Steve McQueen, 2018, USA, 128 mins.
With Elizabeth Debicki, Viola Davis, Liam Neeson, Cynthia Erivo.

Veronica, Linda, Alice and Belle become widows when their criminal husbands botch a robbery.  What is more they are expected to pay back a massive debt to a corrupt politician.  There seems little choice but to team up and take on a crime of their own.  Set in Chicago, where poverty rubs shoulders with extreme wealth, it's a contemporary, stylish take on a heist movie by a great director with a stella cast.
