Jackie Brown

11:10pm Tuesday, April 26 on F4

Part of the Films for Life season. Quentin Tarantino’s slick and fast-paced third film, based on an Elmore Leonard novel, is a tight thriller centred around blaxploitation star Pam Grier, who plays Jackie Brown, a strong woman approaching the end of her career as an air hostess. She’s been trafficking ‘hot’ money for gangster Ordell Robbie (Samuel L Jackson), but when she finds she’s carrying enough for retirement she decides to fly solo, so long as she can keep him, the local cops and the feds convinced of her honesty.
