Mc­Queen flick opens Lon­don Film Fes­ti­val

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

BRI­TISH di­rec­tor Steve Mc­Queen’s first ma­jor fea­ture since Os­car-win­ning 12 Years A Slave, thriller Wid­ows blasts the BFI Lon­don Film Fes­ti­val in October into ac­tion.

The film stars Academy Award win­ner Vi­ola Davis, Michelle Ro­driguez and El­iz­a­beth De­bicki.

The movie, set in Chicago, is a “thriller about women left with a debt by their dead hus­bands’ crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties”.

“Watch­ing the UK TV ver­sion of Lynda La Plante’s orig­i­nal thriller as a teenager in the 1980s had a ma­jor im­pact on me and so it feels very spe­cial to be shar­ing this film,” Mc­Queen said. – Reuters
