Quentin Tarantino takes the traditional Western, gives it an anti-slavery spin and dips the whole Antebellum caboodle in a bucket of blood. Jamie Foxx plays Django, a slave set free and recruited as his right-hand man by dentist-turned-bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (an Oscar-winning Christoph Waltz). They're on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers... but their path eventually takes them to Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) and her brutal master, plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Jarring, bloody violence is smoothly shackled to whip-smart dialogue in Tarantino's inspired reheating of the Spaghetti Western.
