Coffy, is a 1973 American blaxploitation film written and directed by American filmmaker Jack Hill. The story is about a black female vigilante played by Pam Grier who seeks violent revenge against a heroin dealer responsible for her sister's addiction.
(Synopsis): She’s the ultimate tough and sexy heroine. She’s Soul Cinema superstar Pam Grier, and whether delivering her justice with a shotgun, a razor or just her bare hands, she doesn’t miss a beat in this “smashing, no-holds-barred tale of retaliation” (Variety)! Nobody ever commandeered the screen quite like Pam Grier…and Coffy “couldn’t be better! [It’s] one of the most entertaining movies ever made”(Quentin Tarantino)! Grier is Coffy, nurse by day and avenging angel by night. When she discovers that her little sister has been doped up and freaked out by a greedy drug pusher, she not only puts an end to his miserable days, but she vows to follow his trail of corruption up to the top, the very top. But what Coffy doesn’t realize is that all is not as it seems and that the leafy green behind the pushers’ scene just may come from someone she knows!
