This week, the Madcap crew drops into 1996 and reviews director F. Gary Gray's second feature film, Set if Off, starring Vivica A. Fox, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett and featuring our introduction to Kimberly Elise.
After being fired from her job as a bank teller, Frankie (Vivica A. Fox) begins working at a janitorial service with her friends Tisean (Kimberly Elise), a single mother; Cleo (Queen Latifah), a boisterous lesbian; and Stony (Jada Pinkett), who is dealing with the recent death of her brother. The women are struggling with their finances, so they decide to start robbing banks. At first the group is successful, but they soon attract the attention of an obsessive detective (John C. McGinley). The film also stars Blair Underwood, Ella Joyce, Dr. Dre, and Thomas Jefferson Byrd (RIP).

"Vote. It's one way to hold many of our elected officials accountable to who they serve - will they show up for racial justice? Systemic change cannot happen without changing who leads us and that begins with voting." -Andrea Hailey, CEO of Vote.org
