Of course they would be selling Widows with the star power of Viola Davis but I honestly came to see it for Eliabeth Debicki. And I was not disappointed. Everyone though was great in it from Collin Farrell to Robert Duvall to Cynthia Erivo and Michelle Rodriguez.
It’s an explosive movie about crime and drama. It’s a feminist film that puts on display that smugness of men and the ingenuity and tenacity of the female spirit.
There is an element of the unbelievable in it, at times, in terms of the coincidences and some of the plot points but I didn’t care because it was hard-hitting when it had to be and I felt that it juggled the two genres — heavy drama and crime and caper movie — so well and the performances were just unbelievable.
There are scenes and moments that are still stuck in my head and it’s been a week since I last saw it. It’s powerful stuff.
