Ik Ogbonna, Idia Aisien, Alexx Ekubo, Teni The Entertainer, Juliet Ibrahim, Lilian Afegbai recently watched Widows and in unison say it is a must watch.
The “Widows” aren’t just ex-wives or decoys, they’re carefully constructed characters with wildly disparate backgrounds, played by a powerhouse ensemble comprised of Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki and Cynthia Erivo.
As Davis declares in the trailer, “The best thing we have going for us is being who we are… because no one thinks we have the balls to pull this off.”
Underneath the heist plot, the film paints a much more layered portrait of Chicago, where class, race, gender, age and politics rub up against each other in complicated ways, it is gripping! The movie is tough, raw and extremely entertaining.
The cast include Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and the Furious), Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2), Liam Neeson (Taken), Brian Tyree Henry (Hotel Artemis), Daniel Kaluuya (Black Panther), Colin Farrel (Phone Booth) and Cynthia Erivo (Bad Times at the El Royale).
