FROM 17 Oct
Jackie, (Pam Grier) a middle-aged air hostess, supplements her meagre wage by couriering cash for gun-smuggler Ordell (Jackson). Unfortunately, she gets lifted and is faced with an unpleasant choice: shop her boss - who has a habit of plugging traitors; or do time.
With Jackie Brown, his third film, Tarantino defies the doubters, refusing merely to re-rehearse the hip irony of his first two movies and delivering a much more thoughtful, generally less frantic, adaptation of the pulpish Elmore Leonard novel Rum Punch.
The cast is outstanding with Samuel L Jackson, Robert DeNiro, Bridgit Fonda, Michael Keaton and the sublime Robert Forster.
