Their husbands aren’t coming back. Unfortunate, because said husbands left a two-million-dollar debt. Viola Davis is Veronica (widow of Liam Neeson’s Harry), who receives a not-nice visit from gangster-turned-wannabe-alderman Jamal Manning (a menacing Brian Tyree Henry) – the man her husband thieved the big bucks from – and leaves her Lake Shore Drive penthouse to convince three women with nothing in common except dead husbands to take on a heist. Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave, Hunger) directs; author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) co-writes; Chicago’s divided soul radiates; and it’s all reworked from a novel and subsequent ’80s TV series by Lynda La Plante.
