Why It Deserves Your Vote:  In 1996, the hood genre was fading fast but not before delivering one of its finest gems. Where previous films had focused on the plight of young men, this film looked at four women caught in the trap of poverty and their extreme plan to get out – a daring bank heist. Fueled with a growing sense of dread, the film follows the women to the bitter end. CAST YOUR VOTE NOW!
