Steve McQueen Says `Widows' More Than A Heist Film

  • 6 years ago

At first glance, Steve McQueen’s latest film, “Widows”, looks like a fast-paced heist movie, but Steve McQueen says he wanted his Chicago-set movie to take a deeper look at the current political and social-economic climate. Adapted from an 1980s television series by British crime writer Lynda La Plante, “Widows” follows a group of women who plan a heist to pay off a large debt left by their dead husbands’ crimes.
