Display set it off 3


After being pushed to the brink by economic hardship, unjust employers, and a corrupt system, four tight-knit friends in inner city Los Angeles are driven to bank robbery. Jada Pinkett, Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox and Kimberley Elise star as the bank-robbing foursome in search of a better life, forming an incredible quartet with magnetic on-screen chemistry.

Directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Straight Outta Compton), Set It Off was a critical and commercial hit on its initial release in 1996, thanks to pairing thrilling action sequences with a real social conscience. A high octane heist flick that engages seriously with classism, racism, and sexism in mid-90s America, Set It Off is an overlooked gem.

Every audience member will receive a free mini zine about the film, and following the screening there will be a brief “outro” talk about Set It Off. Watch this space for further announcements of added extras to make your moviegoing experience even more special!

This film was suggested for Broomhall Community Cinema to screen by a member of the public - just like all our films are! You choose the films, we show them.
