Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED hosts a star-studded cast including Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx, Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, and our favorite, Leonardo DiCaprio.
The film takes place in the South two years prior to the Civil War. Django (Jamie Foxx) is a slave whose brutal history with his previous owners leads him to come face to face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django is able to lead him to his victims. Schultz promises to free Django upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.
Django successfully captures the brothers and gains freedom, however, the two men decide not to head their separate ways and instead they seek out the South’s most wanted criminals together. The film takes a romantic turn when Django begins to focus on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), his wife he lost to the slave trade several years ago.
The men’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” a notorious plantation where slaves are taught to battle each other for sport. As the men explore the plantation further under false pretenses, their moves are marked and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schutlz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, sacrifice and survival…
