This film is not currently scheduled to screen at New Park.
The wives of New York gangsters in 1970s Manhattan continue to operate their husbands' rackets after they're locked up in prison.
Kathy (Melissa McCarthy – ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’) is a devoted mother of two whose initial reluctance to enter the criminal domain is eventually diminished by her deft abilities; Ruby (Tiffany Haddish) is an outsider in an Irish community who seeks self-sufficiency once her husband is not around to protect her; and Claire (Elisabeth Moss – ‘Handmaid’s Tale’) simply falls in love with the violence of her new life.
These three housewives are left with little but a sharp axe to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia's matters into their own hands - proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition... literally. Written and directed by Andrea Berloff, in her directorial debut.
