Chicago Film Festival Gala Presentation Steve McQueen's Widows

Viola Davis and Liam Neeson lead Steve McQueen's new big screen effort, Widows, from Twentieth Century Fox, in which Chicago is as much an on-screen player as the superb cast. Winner of the 2013 Oscar for Best Picture with 12 Years A Slave and the Festival's 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award honoree, McQueen brings forth a slick, fast-paced thriller in which a big money heist is set against the backdrop of Chicago political corruption. In a nod to #MeToo, the deed is carried out by a crew of vengeful women led by the Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Festival Lifetime Achievement Award- winning actress, who also stars in ABC's How to Get Away with Murder.
