Jackie Brown

Director: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: Robert De Niro, Samuel L. Jackson, Pam Grier
Duration: 154 min

Firmly stamped with Tarantino's trademark visual flair, hip dialogue, supreme soundtrack and cool stars, Jackie Brown is also his most mature and emotionally satisfying work. Brilliantly adapted from Elmore Leonard's novel Rum Punch, the film stars ’70s icon Pam Grier as an airline stewardess who, caught smuggling cash by the Feds, is offered the chance to save herself by leading them to Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson), the arms dealer she works for. With the help of a sympathetic bail bondsman (an Oscar-nominated Robert Forster), she comes up with a bold, almost foolhardy plan to play the violent Ordell off against the determined cops and walk away with a fortune.
