How To Dress Like Mia Wallace
What is Pulp Fiction?
Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, based on a story by Tarantino and Roger Avary. The film stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, and Uma Thurman. Directed in a highly stylized manner, Pulp Fiction connects the intersecting storylines of Los Angeles mobsters, fringe players, small-time criminals, and a mysterious briefcase. Considerable time is devoted to conversations and monologues that reveal the characters’ feelings about each other and themselves.
The film’s title refers to the pulp magazines and hardboiled crime novels popular during the mid-20th century—known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue. “Pulp” refers to the cheap, mass-produced paper on which most of them were printed. Pulp Fiction is regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. It was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture, and won the Palme d’Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.Check Price on Amazon

Who is Mia Wallace?
Mia Wallace is a fictional character and the wife of Vincent Vega in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. She is portrayed by actress Uma Thurman. The character was significantly written for her, and was originally intended to be called “Candy”. She is the only character to appear in all three of Tarantino’s films set within a single fictional universe: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown.
Mia has been described by Tarantino as the “heart and soul” of Pulp Fiction. The role was written specifically for Thurman after she starred in Tarantino’s 1992 film, Reservoir Dogs. Thurman was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance. Mia is depicted as a heroin addict who later turns to cannibalism after being shot in the head at her own request. Her death scene is considered one of cinema’s most iconic images.
