August 29 2019
Based on the Vertigo comic book series from DC Entertainment, the film stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss as three 1978 Hells Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafias matters into their own handsproving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition literally.
Some have power thrust upon them, some go to extremes to achieve it, all of them will do anything to keep it; and none of them are waiting for a man to save the day. Today we celebrate the women of power in movies and TV.
