Book Description

Jackie Brown is Quentin Tarantinos transformation of Elmore Leonards Rum Punch into film. Tarantino has taken Leonards novel and, by shifting the focus onto the character of Jackie Brown, has transformed the material into a work that is uniquely his own. Jackie Brown is an airline stewardess 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 give the screenplay its unbearable tension. Jackie Brown emerges as one of Quentin Tarantinos most extraordinary characters as she pulls the old bait-and-switch routine, playing the good guys off against the bad guys. Jackie Brown displays Quentin Tarantinos brilliance at structuring a story, as well as his genius for stimulating the senses with his dialogue.
