Presentato alla stampa nordamericana in anteprima mondiale, oggi al Toronto International Film Festival è il giorno di Widows – Eredità criminale, atteso heist movie co-scritto e diretto dal regista premio Oscar Steve McQueen ed in arrivo nelle sale italiane a partire dal 15 novembre grazie a 20th Century Fox.

Le prime reazioni della critica americana sono state più che positive per il rifacimento in salsa cinematografica della miniserie omonima degli anni ’80, qui riscritta dallo stesso McQueen assieme alla sceneggiatrice e romanziera di successo Gillian Flynn. Ad enfatizzare la dinamicità della visione del regista di 12 anni schiavo l’ottimo cast, tra cui spiccano le performance di Viola Davis, l’australiana Elizabeth Debicki e del candidato alla statuetta Daniel Kaluuya, qui inedito e minaccioso villain.

Nella moderna Chicago, teatro di agitazioni e tumulti, quattro donne con nulla in comune decidono di dare una svolta alle loro esistenze. Prendendo in mano le redini dei propri destini, progettano di portare a termine il colpo criminale per cui i loro mariti hanno perso la vita.
Steve McQueen’s ‘Widows’ was *fantastic*. Loved all the performances but Viola Davis and Elizabeth Debicki are next level and will be players in Award season. Another movie I can’t recommend enough. One of the best film’s at #TIFF18 and 2018. pic.twitter.com/zLvpFs6Dnb

Just finished watching #Widows (directed by Steve McQueen) at #TIFF and I am shaking. Y’all aren’t ready. Not. Ready.

AT ALL.

I’ve RT’d what @adambvary thinks about #Widows because I agree!

I saw this movie before #TIFF18, but I’m still going to say it’s my favorite movie of the festival. It’s too bad that every actor in #Widows needs to be nominated for Oscars, but that’s just the way it needs to be. https://t.co/R1qBe9JYvr

I’m a sucker for a good heist movie and WIDOWS is a winner. Steve McQueen assembled and directed one fiery cast. All hail, Viola Davis. #TIFF2018

You could argue for 5-6 people who give the movie’s best performance and everyone would be right, but Daniel Kaluuya might be the one I think about the longest— as scary and charismatic as a villain gets

Elizabeth Debicki is the stand-out from “Widows.” I wish the movie worked for me but it doesn’t. Felt like it wanted to be way longer (which of course it originally was). But McQueen is definitely trying a thing or two in the filmmaking. Experimenting.

You could isolate any single scene in WIDOWS and I’d have more to say about it than most movies I’ve seen this year

WIDOWS: Highest-grade pulp from dir. Steve McQueen and co-writer @TheGillianFlynn, relocating the British miniseries to a spectacularly corrupt Chicago setting. @violadavis and @danielkaluuya top a very fine ensemble. Ringer: @CynthiaEriVo, who’d tone up any heist. #TIFF18
