Les Veuves ou Veuves au Québec (Widows) est un film dramatique britannico-américain réalisé par Steve McQueen, sorti en 2018. Co-écrit par McQueen et Gillian Flynn et basé sur la série télévisée britannique Widows, le film suit quatre femmes de Chicago qui tentent de voler cinq millions de dollars au domicile d'un politicien local en vue de rembourser un chef de la criminalité à qui deux millions de dollars lui ont été volés par leurs maris avant d’être tués dans une tentative de fuite ratée.

La distribution du long-métrage comprend Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki et Cynthia Erivo, mais aussi Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Liam Neeson et Daniel Kaluuya. Distribué par la 20th Century Fox, Les Veuves est présenté en avant-première au Festival international du film de Toronto le 8 septembre 2018, avant de sortir en salles le 8 novembre 2018 au Royaume-Uni et le 16 novembre 2018 aux États-Unis. En France, après une avant-première française à la 9e édition du festival international du film de La Roche-sur-Yon, le film sort le 28 novembre 2018.

Bien que n'ayant pas obtenu de véritable succès commercial (76 millions $ de recettes mondiales pour un budget de 42 millions $), Les Veuves est largement acclamé par la critique, qui a salué la réalisation, le scénario et la performance des acteurs, en particulier ceux de Davis, Debicki et Kaluuya.

Synopsis

Chicago. Alors qu'ils viennent de commettre un braquage chez le criminel Jamal Mannings en lui volant deux millions de dollars, le voleur de renom Henry Rawlins et son équipe sont tués dans une explosion lors d'une confrontation avec la police. La veuve de Rawlins, Veronica, reçoit la visite menaçante de Jamal, qui convoite le poste de conseiller municipal du South Side où il a comme adversaire Jack Mulligan, issu d'une famille de conseillers municipaux. Ayant besoin des deux millions pour financer sa campagne, Jamal contraint Veronica de réunir la somme en un mois. Un jour, elle découvre le carnet d'Henry contenant un plan détaillé d'un braquage pour un butin de cinq millions de dollars. Afin de mener à bien le plan pour rembourser de la dette, Veronica prend contact avec Alice, Linda et Amanda, les trois veuves des complices de son défunt mari pour l'assister. Seuls Alice et Linda viennent au lieu de rendez-vous. Alors qu'elle est chez Amanda pour lui parler, Veronica découvre le flacon d'un parfum qu'elle a offert à Henry et conclut qu'il a une liaison avec Amanda et qu'il est le père du nouveau-né de la jeune femme. Veronica, dévastée, quitte les lieux. Cette dernière charge Alice d'acquérir une fourgonnette achetée lors d'une vente aux enchères et trois pistolets Glock. Linda, quant à elle, doit déchiffrer le plan. Grâce à son amant occasionnel avec qui elle entretient une relation transactionnelle, Alice identifie le projet comme un coffre-fort dans la maison de Jack Mulligan.
