“Tarantino has once again defied the critics and produced a movie that solidly establishes him as still the most important filmmaker of the decade” - Empire ★★★★
Dust off your Kangol cap, turn up the ‘70s Soul and join us this September in celebrating 25 years of QT's all-star homage to the blaxploitation boom by seeing Jackie Brown back on the big screen. This criminally underrated masterwork showcases a breath-taking performance from the incomparable badass that is Pam Grier – who triumphs alongside a cast of Robert De Niro, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and the late, great Robert Forster.
25 years on, Jackie Brown is ready to stake its claim as the very best there is... accept no substitutes.
Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) supplements her meagre income as a stewardess by smuggling cash into the U.S. for gun runner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) — until the day an ATF agent and an L.A. cop bust her at the airport. The cops pressure her to help them bring down Ordell, threatening prison if she refuses. With a sympathetic bail bondsman (Robert Forster), Jackie arrives at a bold plan to play the opposing forces against each other. Matters get complicated by Ordell's confederates, Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) and Melanie Ralston (Bridget Fonda), who have agendas of their own. By appearing to co-operate with both sides, Jackie attempts to outfox them both and walk away with a half million dollar payday.
