One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
"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 (Viola Davis), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.Written by

Incoherent in its multiplicity of themes this movies is a mixed bag of elements that worked and others that just overly complicated a simple heist.
What was good, Colin Farrell was good as was Elizabeth Debicki giving solid nuanced performances of conflicted characters, I also loved Olivia the dog who just dominated her scenes. Viola Davis and Liam Neeson overworked it and appeared nearly hysterical throughout which was a great shame.
The plot was labyrinthine and some plot turns just had no motivational necessity.
Overall I enjoyed it but where was the glittering promise we expected from Steve McQueen who seems to have lost his way he needs to decide either a block buster crime drama or an issue led movie a mixture of two genres is destined for failure.
