Death is inevitable for us all and what we do with our time on Earth to leave our mark is one of the most important questions of life. Filmmakers, screenwriters, editors, cinematographers and actors have the great luck of doing work that will be with us forever and Parting Is Such Sweet Cinema is the place where we say goodbye to some cinematic talents who have recently left us. Come pay your respects with popcorn and a focused eye.

In honor of actor Robert Forster (July 13, 1941 - October 11, 2019)

When flight attendant Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is busted smuggling money for her arms dealer boss, Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson), agent Ray Nicolette (Michael Keaton) and detective Mark Dargus (Michael Bowen) want her help to bring down Robbie. Facing jail time for her silence or death for her cooperation, Brown decides instead to double-cross both parties and make off with the smuggled money. Meanwhile, she enlists the help of bondsman Max Cherry (Robert Forster), a man who loves her.


Cinematographer: Guillermo Navarro | Screenwriter: Quentin Tarantino / based on the novel by Elmore Leonard
Cast: Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forster, Michael Keaton, Robert De Niro
