Overview

Comic book fanatic Clarence (Christian Slater) is treating himself on his birthday to a martial arts triple-feature when he meets a beautiful call girl named Alabama (Patricia Arquette). After falling in love over a game of ’20 Questions’ at a diner, the pair promptly head to Alabama’s pimp Drexl (Gary Oldman) to inform him that she’s decided on a change of career. He’s a little miffed – naturally – and the first of many shots are fired. The two lovebirds escape with a bag of Drexl’s cocaine, planning to sell the drugs in L.A. and ride off into the sunset. Problem is, the drugs actually belonged to the Sicilian mafia and a mob of ruthless gangsters are soon hot on their tail to reclaim what’s theirs – by whatever means necessary.

Why You Should See This Film

Quentin Tarantino’s trademark gutter poetry is stamped all over this scorching screenplay, which was his very first written for a major motion picture. Directed by ‘80s maverick Tony Scott (Top Gun, The Hunger) with shoot-em-up flair, True Romance is a first-rate, utterly sublime romantic thriller and features irresistible supporting performances from Dennis Hopper, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken, Samuel L. Jackson, Val Kilmer and James Gondolfini. Need we say more?
