She’s Gotta Have It 


Spike Lee’s debut feature film, She’s Gotta Have It, tells the story of Nola Darling and her three lovers as she strives to live an authentic life of self-actualisation and fulfillment. Lauded for its subtle and three-dimensional female lead and inspiring depiction of mid-80s Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the film put Lee on the map and established him as one of the most exciting American filmmakers to come out of the 1980s. Lee even updated and adapted She’s Gotta Have It into a two-series Netflix programme of the same name in 2017, proving the longevity of the film’s impact and its enduring relevance.
