Preview, A heist goes wrong, and Viola and the “Widows” take over

Steve McQueen is years-removed from “Twelve Years A Slave,” and his latest has less of a social justice subtext than a gender parity one.

Liam Neeson and Jon Bernthal are among the husbands whose big money heist goes terribly wrong. Viola David, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki are among the women they leave behind, who decide to follow through and keep the cash from the law and the bad sort who the money belonged to.

And if that’s not star-studded enough for you, try Colin Farrell and Robert Duvall and Jacki Weaver and Carrie Coon and Lukas Haas.

“Widows” opens Nov. 16.
