Widows / Bohemian Rhapsody / Wildlife

Queen Viola. Queen Carey. And... Queen.

Oscar-winner Viola Davis heads the ace ensemble for Steve McQueen's ("12 Years A Slave") new Chicago-set heist thriller WIDOWS, writer Gillian Flynn's adaptation of a BBC miniseries from the 80s. Adam and Josh dig McQueen's take on a corrupt Chi-town, but debate his handling of some of the performances. They're in more agreement on actor Paul Dano's assured directing debut, WILDLIFE, which stars the always-great-but-maybe-never-greater Carey Mulligan along with Jake Gyllenhaal. And while Adam can't argue with the critical consensus on the new Queen biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, he can recommend the band's legendary 1985 Live Aid performance... which is available in all its glory online.
