In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna
Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her
family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz).
Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris where she forges a
new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.

Elsewhere in Europe, lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes
a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift, shocking
acts of retribution. Later known to their enemy as "the
basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover
agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to
take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Fates converge under
a cinema marquis, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a
revenge plan of her own...

Employing pulp and propaganda in equal measure, Quentin
Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS weaves together infamous,
oppressed, real and larger-than-life stories of WWII.
