"To watch them coalesce into a hard-nosed crew of heisters is the year’s most purely pleasurable piece of transformation."
-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"It proves that there’s another McQueen who’s always been bursting to get out - the same one whose industry secret is that he’s always itched to make a James Bond movie, and now very possibly will."
-Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"The black humour lightens the mood, or twists it, at every turn."
-Charlotte O’Sullivan, London Evening Standard
"McQueen deals with bereavement, race, gender and class at the same time as telling a riproaring story about a group of widows who need to get hold of a lot of money very quickly."
-Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"It is a film with a sledgehammer punch."
-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
Veronica, Linda, Alice and Belle have nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Tensions soon rise when they take fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
