Not since Bonnie and Clyde have two people been so good at being bad.

“It’s Tarantino’s gutter poetry that detonates True Romance. This movie is dynamite.” – Rolling Stone

“This film’s various outrages are committed unapologetically, and are very much in the service of its bizarre story.” – The New York Times

In a non-traditional Valentine’s Day fashion, join us for this 1993 movie adventure written by Quentin Tarantino with a 92% Rotten Tomatoes score and a 93% Audience Score.

In this passionate, hard-edged story, two unlikely lovers, Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) and Alabama (Patricia Arquette), double-cross the Detroit mob by unwittingly stealing a load of valuable contraband.

The couple flees to Los Angeles, where their plan to sell the goods and vanish together forever sets them on a collision course with both gangsters and police.

  • It was Brad Pitt’s idea for his character to be a stoner who never leaves the couch.
  • Quentin Tarantino sold the script for fifty thousand dollars, which was the minimum amount of money that could be paid for a script at the time (according to WGA rules)
  • That’s Patricia Arquette’s four-year-old son Enzo Rossi in the final scene.
  • The hat Brad Pitt wears in the kitchen sequence, he found abandoned on the boardwalk in Venice, California. He took it, washed it, and wore it for the film.
