To call Widows a heist film is reductive. It revolves around a heist, but that doesn't do the film justice.
Veronica Rawlings, played by Viola Davis, has an adoring husband and seemingly loving marriage. Her husband, Harry (Liam Neeson), is also a successful criminal, but when a job goes bad and he along with his entire crew are killed, a large number of puzzle pieces fall into the laps of those left behind. Interconnected are the people Harry stole from and those he stole for. Robert Duvall and Colin Farrell play the aging patriarch and future of the Chicago political dynasty Mulligan
