Viola Davis heads this cast of women who must pick up the pieces after their husbands are killed in a robbery gone wrong. Although it screams out of the gate with a furious car chase, the film settles into a robust character drama (with some social commentary for extra punch). The group of women has to deal with their own lives, while trying to manage an elaborate heist. Still, this film is more about the people than the crime. All of the exceptional actors create interesting characters. Director Steve McQueen has included a few technically flashy shots and some surprising twists, but he’s imbued every frame with a quiet intensity that keeps it compelling. Although one might be tempted to compare it to “Oceans 8,” this is much less glossy and much more thoughtful.
