Jackie Brown supplements her meagre income as a stewardess by smuggling cash into the U.S. for gun runner Ordell Robbie — 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, Jackie arrives at a bold plan to play the opposing forces against each other. Matters get complicated by Ordell’s confederates, Louis Gara and Melanie Ralston, 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.
The rest of the cast includes Robert De Niro, Bridget Fonda, Robert Forster, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and Chris Tucker.
Jackie Brown is being shown in 200+ screens check your local listings for a screening near you. The film will play in UK and Irish cinemas from 16th September.
