Praised with "4 stars," (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), Tarantino's feature film follow-up Jackie Brown earned a 1997 Oscar® nomination for supporting actor Robert Forster (Mulholland Drive), three Golden Globe nominations (including Best Musical/Comedy) and an NAACP Image Award nomination for Pam Grier’s performance. An all-star cast joins Grier and Forster, including Samuel L. Jackson, Robert DeNiro, Michael Keaton and Bridget Fonda in Tarantino's adaptation of the novel by Elmore Leonard (3:10 to Yuma, Out of Sight).
A sexy flight attendant (Grier) is caught in a plot between the police and an arms dealer, and everyone's looking for the payoff. There are six unlikely players on the trail for a big score - a half million dollars in cash. But alliances are shaky when its unclear who is playing and who is getting played.
