Description

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award -winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with a German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award-winner Christolph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles dead or alive. Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the Souths most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. Django and Schultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz rouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candies trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.

Synopsis
A former slave and a German bounty hunter become unlikely allies in the battle against a tyrannical plantation owner in this western from visionary director Quentin Tarantino. Two years before the Civil War pits brother-against-brother, German-born fugitive hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz) arrives in America determined to capture the outlaw Brittle brothers dead or alive. In the midst of his search, Dr. Schultz crosses paths with Django (Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx), a freed slave and skilled tracker who seeks to rescue his beloved wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from ruthless plantation owner Calvin Candie (Academy Award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio). Once Django has aided Dr. Schultz in coralling the Brittle brothers, the two team up to capture some of the most wanted men in the South. Meanwhile, Django never loses sight of his mission to free Broomhilda from the treacherous slave trade before it's too late. Upon arriving at Candie's nefarious plantation, dubbed Candyland, Django and Dr. Schultz discover that slaves are being groomed for gladiator-like competitions by Candie's malevolent right-hand man Billy Crash (Walton Goggins), and together they skillfully work their way onto the compound for a closer look. But just as Django and his partner locate Broomhilda and plot a daring escape, Candie's house slave Stephen (Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson) catches wind of their plan, and informs his master of the betrayal. Now, as a clandestine organization attempts to back them into a corner, Django and Dr. Schultz will have to come out with pistols blazing if they ever hope to free Broomhilda from Candyland and the clutches of its vile proprietor.

"DJANGO UNCHAINED feels throughout like a Southern-fried American companion piece to INGLORIOUS BASTERDS."
Nathan Rabin (24 Dec 2012, )
Box Office
5 stars out of 5 -- "DJANGO UNCHAINED, writer-director Quentin Tarantino's latest film, is in many ways also his best film, combining his maniacal style of mashed-up fragments from the cultural canon with a seriousness of intent that turns DJANGO into a discussion of both pop and politics."
James Rocchi (26 Dec 2012, )
Entertainment Weekly
"What it does have is Samuel L. Jackson in a pinpoint performance..."
Owen Gleiberman (25 Dec 2012, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Tarantino injects the weighty material with so many jocular, startling and unexpected touches that it’s constantly stimulating."
Todd McCarthy (11 Dec 2012, )
Los Angeles Times
"In DJANGO, Tarantino is a man unchained, creating his most articulate, intriguing, provoking, appalling, hilarious, exhilarating, scathing and downright entertaining film yet."
Betsy Sharkey (23 Dec 2012, )
Movieline
"There's something inarguably rousing about Tarantino's exuberant revisionist history, about the way he rewrites wretched eras in the past so that those who suffered are able to have their bloody revenge."
Alison Willmore (12 Dec 2012, )
New York Times
"It is digressive, jokey, giddily brutal and ferociously profane. But it is also a troubling and important movie about slavery and racism."
A. O. Scott (25 Dec 2012, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Unchain Tarantino and you get a jolt of pure cinema, dazzling, disreputable and thrillingly alive."
Peter Travers (17 Jan 2013, )
Total Film
"DJANGO sees Tarantino pulling apart the genre iconography and gluing it back together as a postmodern Franken-western."
Matt Glasby (18 Dec 2012, )
USA Today
3.5 out of 4 stars -- "There's an epic spaghetti Western feel to Quentin Tarantino's latest action/comedy/romance hybrid that is by turns dazzling, daring, gruesome and astonishingly funny."
Claudia Puig (3 Jan 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"[I]t finds Mr. Tarantino perched improbably but securely on the top of a production that's wildly extravagant, ferociously violent, ludicrously lurid and outrageously entertaining..."
(27 Dec 2012, )
