Set It Off 15 rating

A tight-knit group of friends decide to rob banks in this unapologetically subversive display of black female agency.

Crime 1996 124 mins

Director: F. Gary Gray


Starring Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett-Smith, feminist awakening and female friendship is more at the forefront of Set it Off than sex itself. But within its heist movie parameters, it becomes a surprisingly moving treatise on the nature of self-love and sexual confidence, centring female pleasure and selfhood above the attractions of any man.
