G is for Memphis

Welcome to day seven of the A to Z Challenge. If you're here for the first time or if you've forgotten already, this year's theme is movies! I am posting a quote, a character or two, and a brief synopsis of a movie for each letter. You then get to guess the movie in the comments. Answers will be revealed in the following day's post.

Answer to F: The Fifth Element

Today, we're doing the letter G. Believe it or not, we're switching genre. How's that for a great clue? Narrowing the field to everything that is not SciFi. Here we go.

Synopsis
96 hours to do the impossible. How far will a brother go to save family? This remake kept very little of the original script, but that's fine. It's a fun movie with loads of adrenaline. One of my guilty pleasures.

Quote
'If his unpleasant wounding has in some way enlightened the rest of you as to the grim finish beneath the glossy veneer of criminal life and inspired you to change your ways, then his injuries carries with it an inherent nobility and a supreme glory. We should all be so fortunate. You say, "poor Toby". I say, "poor us".'

Character
Eleanor - If you know the movie, 'nuff said. If you don't, she's the most beautiful character in the movie. Even my wife was drooling. She's dangerous, she's gorgeous, and she'll make him regret ever seeing her; but he can't walk away.

See you tomorrow!
