"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

Cynthia Erivo, who plays Belle in the film, is an accomplished singer in real life - she won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical as well as the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album for her performance in the Broadway revival of 'The Color Purple'. This movie originally featured a scene where Erivo did sing, however, it was cut from the final version because director Steve McQueen wanted her performance to be "as pure as possible, no singing, no anything," a choice that the actress agreed with.

When the husbands' gang is surrounded and the van explodes, it neatly separates into two halves as it was clearly cut in two by the production crew. Real explosions are not so neat. See more »

An Easy To Watch, Well Rounded Movie
01/24/2019 Immediate viewer immersion is guaranteed. A couple of slow spots, building the storylines foundation, but once that's done, your hooked. I really enjoyed this easy to watch movie, a pleasant change from the standard fare we're forced to watch. Bon Appetit
