About Book

Jackie Brown is an airline stewardness who is arrested for smuggling money into America, thus falling victim to a plot by the FBI to undo her boss, who is trafficking in illegal weapons. Jackie finds herself in a no-win situation, and her attempts to walk the tightrope between the two opposing factions gives the screenplay its unbearable tension.

Jackie Brown emerges as one of Quentin Tarantino's most extraordinary characters as she pulls the old-bait-and-switch routine, playing the good guys off against the bad guys.

  • About Quentin Tarantino

    Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1963, Quentin Tarantino was an ex-video store clerk whose debut feature Reservoir Dogs (1991) became a huge cult hit. Two earlier scripts - True Romance and Natural Born Killers - were then filmed, while his own Pulp Fiction (1994) won the Palme d'Or at Cannes and an Oscar for Best Screenplay. Subsequently, he has contributed to Four Rooms (1995) and From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), and made Jackie Brown (1998), Kill Bill (2003), Death Proof (2008) and Inglourious Basterds (2009).
