The director of the epic Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave returns with a heist thriller based on Lynda La Plante’s 1983 British TV crime drama, though with the action transported from England to Chicago. After a heist goes wrong, killing all the men involved, their wives are forced to pick up the pieces when a criminal-turned-politician demands they repay their husbands’ debts. A dazzling update delivered with aplomb, style and superb acting from Davis and the ensemble cast.
