In Chicago, BGN Managing Editor Jonita Davis sat down with the cast and crew of the new 20th Century Fox thriller Widows due for release this week. The following interviews feature director Steve McQueen and actors Viola Davis, Liam Neeson, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Rodriguez and Brian Tyree Henry.
From Academy Award®-winning director Steve McQueen and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn come a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion, and corruption. “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 (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. “Widows” also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.
Widows releases in theaters nationwide November 16, 2018.
