MASSIVE/ Widows, 13 December 2018, from £4.99 - Book now

Brand new cinema initiative MASSIVE brings its zest for British cinema to Manchester with a special screening of Steve McQueen’s Widows at VUE, Printworks. The film sees McQueen, the British, Turner Prize-winning visual artist turned film director behind Shame and 12 Years a Slave, apply his trademark style to a reworking of Lynda La Plante’s 1980s television series. Co-written by Gone Girl scribe Gillian Flynn, Widows sees Viola Davis as Veronica, a recent bereaved Chicagoan forced to bring together a group of women (including Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Erivo) who inherit their criminal husbands’ debt.

The film has earned praise for the way it combines a tense, detail-oriented heist thriller with a sympathetic, politically engaged portrait of modern day Chicago. MASSIVE present a final chance to see the film on the big screen, with the added bonus of pre-show music videos from Ashnikko and Lily Allen and limited edition merchandise for every filmgoer.
