A recently freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a plantation owner.
After taking on the Nazis in Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino set his sights on slavery with this exhilarating, appalling and incessantly entertaining spaghetti Western- style movie. With an intriguing story and dazzling dialogue, it’s the casting that leaves the biggest impression. Dr King Schultz ( Christoph Waltz), a dentist turned bounty hunter, frees Django ( Jamie Foxx), a slave who’s hellbent on rescuing his wife from the plantation owned by the sadistic Calvin Candie ( Leonardo DiCaprio).
