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.

Once a promising baseball player, Troy (Washington) is haunted by resentment at the racist treatment that has left him earning a living as a garbage collector. Although he’s often charming, Troy’s tight grip over his family has deepening consequences.

While Washington is excellent in this adaptation of August Wilson’s play, Viola Davis’s stunning performance as wife Rose has earned the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award.
