Bring it On
This film is a part of our Staff Picks series.
Director: Peyton Reed
“When you go to nationals…bring it.”
Fan favorite Bring it On returns to the big screen as Micaela’s Staff Pick. A young Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union star in this energetic comedy about the cheer rivalry that develops when a white, affluent squad is exposed for stealing all of their routines from a predominantly Black squad. At first glance a light-hearted romp about the path to cheerleading nationals, the film is also a savvy critique of cultural appropriation.
