Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarantino

This is the complete original screenplay for the movie Inglourious Basterds, starring Brad Pitt.

The setting is Nazi-occupied France, the main character is a Nazi known as "the Jew Hunter."

A Jewish teenager witnesses the murder of her family by this man, and she vows never to forget him. She escapes by fleeing to Paris and attaching herself to an old woman who owns a theater. In time, she becomes the owner and operator of the theater herself.

Then she meets a group of soldiers led by Lt. Aldo Raine, a hillbilly from the Tennessee mountains. His method of ridding the world of Nazis is to catch them, kill them, and scalp them - all to increase the fear factor. Their group is known as "the Basterds".

Add in a German actress who is also an undercover agent, and the pot begins to boil.

All these characters come together in a final confrontation that will amaze and overwhelm you with how smoothly Quent Tarantino works it all out - and how it ends!
