Yes, it’s the Lynda la Plante 1983 TV series Widows, given a sharp and elegant interpretation for the cinema by Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave). Every member of the top flight cast is terrific – Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki are an unforgettable team of women determined not to give in when their criminal husbands leave them in crippling debt. There are a few men in it too - watch out for Colin Farrell and Robert Duvall. A crime movie with style and characters you care about.

‘It offers everything adults used to love about cinema.’ Brandan Katz, Observer
