She is driven by an unquenchable need for revenge, she makes it her mission to get even with every person who contributed to the loss of her unborn child, her entire wedding party, and four years of her life. The Bride sets off on her pursuit of justice, enduring unthinkable injuries and immoral enemies.
Tarantino’s second feature film is one of the very best crime dramas. With engaging characters, non‑stop action, and intricately woven individual stories, Pulp Fiction follows on July 4.

In this ultra-hip crime movie, their storyline is interwoven with those of their boss, gangster Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames), his actress wife, Mia (Uma Thurman), struggling boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis), master fixer Winston Wolfe (Harvey Keitel) and an anxious pair of armed robbers, “Pumpkin” (Tim Roth) and “Honey Bunny” (Amanda Plummer).
