Tarantinoâ€™s Death Proof is a white knuckle ride behind the wheel of a psycho serial killerâ€™s roving, revving, racing death machine. The chick-power movie is divided into two parts, both of which are exhilarating for the vibrant bonding and camaraderie they develop among two different sets of young women.
For Austinâ€™s hottest DJ, Jungle Julia (Sydney Tamiia Poitier), dusk offers an opportunity to unwind with two of her closest friends, Shanna and Arlene (Jordan Ladd and Vanessa Ferlito). This three fox posse sets out into the night, turning heads from Gueroâ€™s to the Texas Chili Parlor. Not all of the attention is innocent: Covertly tracking their moves is Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell), a scarred, weathered rebel who leers from behind the wheel of his muscle car. As the girls settle into their beers, Mikeâ€™s weapon, a white-hot juggernaut, revs just feet awayÅ Also starring in DEATH PROOF are Rosario Dawson, Tracie Thoms, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, ZoÃ« Bell, Rose McGowan, Omar Doom and Eli Roth.
DEATH PROOF, Cert 18 is released in Ireland September 21st.
The 6th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival will take place from February 15th â€“ 24th, 2008
