Widows ★★★★

“we’re on our own”

such a slow burn but well worth putting in the time. when the big plan actually kicks into action i was on the edge of my seat. the plot is sometimes a little too thin, but all the leads here are top notch: viola always performs, and cynthia and michelle bring real weight and significance to their roles while elizabeth debicki steals every scene she’s in

and it’s subtly very gorgeous too: there are some really interesting shots in this that blend in perfectly with more average ones even though they’re anything but. and by the ending i was tearing up, i didn’t realize how invested i was until it cut to black. definitely one of my favorite final scenes of the year, so subdued but so gratifying
