About the Film
A flight attendant with a criminal past gets nabbed by the ATF for smuggling. Under pressure to become an informant against the drug dealer she works for, she must find a way to secure her future without getting killed.
JACKIE BROWN is Quentin Tarantino’s third cinematic dose of retro Hollywood flair. His choice to cast 1970s blaxploitation icon Pam Grier in the lead role was a stroke of genius and continues to connect the film to the soulful charm of its predecessors. Add to that an ensemble cast including Robert DeNiro, Samuel L. Jackson, Bridgette Fonda, and even Tony Curtis, this film, while more understated than most of his others, is one of Tarantino’s best!
Along with the specialty cocktail, we will have a full menu of wine, local beer and local ciders.
