JACKIE BROWN
1997, Park Circus/Miramax, 154 min, USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) supplements her meager income as a stewardess by smuggling cash into the U.S. for gun runner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) - until the day she gets busted at the airport. The cops pressure her to help them bring down Ordell, threatening prison if she refuses. With a sympathetic bail bondsman, Jackie arrives at a bold plan to play the opposing forces against each other. But matters get complicated by Ordell's confederates (Robert De Niro and Bridget Fonda), who have agendas of their own. Edited by Sally Menke.
