Jackie (Pam Grier) supplements her meager income as a stewardess by smuggling cash into the U.S. for gunnrunner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) - until the day an ATF agent (Michael Keaton) and an LA cop (Michael Bowman) bust her at the airport. The cops pressure her to help them bring down Ordell, threatening prison if she refuses.
With a sympathetic bailbondsman (Robert Forster), Jackie arrives at a bold, almost foolhardy plan to play off these opposing forces against each other. Matters are complicated by Ordell's confederates, Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) and Melanie Ralston (Bridget Fonda) who have agendas of their own. By appearing to cooperate with both sides, Jackie attempts to outfox them both and walk away with a half million dollar payday.

Actor Robert Forster discusses his breakthrough role in Jackie Brown, working with Quentin Tarantino, Alcatraz, and much more.
Most people familiar with director Quentin Tarantino's work know he has a penchant for reviving the careers of actors he admires. John Travolta was coming off Look Who's Talking Now before Pulp Fiction put him in the spotlight again, David Carradine started getting a lot more movie work after Kill Bill Vol. 1, and stuntwoman-turned-actress Zoe Bell made a name for herself in Death Proof. Out of all Quentin Tarantino's career revivals, though, my favorite still has to be Robert Forster in the superb Elmore Leonard adaptation Jackie Brown, which makes its Blu-ray debut October 4. Robert Forster completely shines as bail bondsman Max Cherry, a role which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
