Director: TONY SCOTT

119 minutes, U.S.A., 1993, Digital

This film was released on Friday 20th November 2015 and is no longer screening. 

Based on the very first script Quentin Tarantino ever wrote, Tony Scott’s True Romance is a vibrant, funny, and thoroughly entertaining account of the ineffably sweet love story between Clarence (Christian Slater), a fan of kung-fu movies who works in a comic book shop, and novice prostitute Alabama (Patricia Arquette), who first meet as a result of Clarence’s boss’ misguided largesse.

In order to be together, Alabama must escape from her vicious pimp Drexl (an almost unrecognisable Gary Oldman, in one of the film’s many noteworthy cameos); when Clarence goes to make the case for Alabama, their violent confrontation sees him flee the scene with a bag filled with drugs. As the two plan to sell their find and start a new life, they are followed by a cavalcade of trouble and memorable characters in this blisteringly brilliant film. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)
