From the Publisher
With such iconic films as the Oscar-winningPulp Fiction,Kill Bill: Volumes 1 & 2, andReservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino has become the most famous and revered writer/director of his generation. Now he''s back with his most ambitious movie yet: the World War II epicInglourious Basterds. Starring Brad Pitt and filmed on location in Germany and France, it has the largest cast of characters of any Tarantino film to date. The movie will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2009.
The action tale follows the parallel story of a guerilla-like squad of American soldiers called "The Basterds" and the French Jewish teenage girl Shosanna who find themselves behind enemy Nazi lines during the German occupation. When the Inglourious Basterds encounter Shosanna at a propaganda screening at the movie house she runs, they conspire to launch an unexpected plot to end the war. Pitt plays Lieutenant Aldo Raine--the leader of the Basterds. Raine is an illiterate hillbilly from the mountains of Tennessee who puts together a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers to hunt down the Nazis.
Filled with Tarantino''s trademark electric dialogue and thrilling action sequences,Inglourious Basterdsis destined to become one of the most talked about films of 2009 and a landmark in cinematic history.
