Full film details

Desperate times lead to desperate measures. In the 1970s New York City neighbourhood of Hell’s Kitchen, Kathy Brennan (Melissa McCarthy), Ruby O’Carroll (Tiffany Haddish), and Claire Walsh (Elisabeth Moss) are three wives, and friends, attached to prominent Irish mobsters.

Yet, when the FBI catches their husbands and sends them to prison, the cash they used to live off dries up. Struggling to get jobs, these mothers are unable to make ends meet. Married to a life of crime, there’s only one thing for it.

Kathy, Ruby, and Claire decide to delve headfirst into the New York City underworld, challenge the patriarchy of Irish organised crime, and look to take charge of their lives – and Hell’s Kitchen.

How will the trio fare as they stare death, danger, and trigger-happy male-chauvinist gangsters in the face? For some, the transition is a little too easy. Could they push things too far?

Screenwriter Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton) directs her first feature film, starring Melissa McCarthy (The Happytime Murders, Ghostbusters), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Men), and Tiffany Haddish (The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Night School). Based on the comic book series from Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics, it shows how three mobster wives become a force to be reckoned with.
