Django UnchainedQuentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) goes west for the crime movie Django Unchained.

The movie tells the story of slave Django (Jamie Foxx, Collateral), who’s bought by bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz, Water for Elephants) with the promise of freedom if he tracks down the murderous Brittle brothers.

Django has another goal: to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington, Mother and Child) from the brutal plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio, J. Edgar), who’s protected by his trusted house slave Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson, Marvel’s The Avengers).

Tarantino’s bloody action film scored high with both critics and moviegoers, with 89% and 94% approval, respectively, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Wrote Denver Post‘s Lisa Kennedy: “Django Unchained is Tarantino’s most complete movie yet. It is also his most vital. His storytelling talents match the heft of the tale.”
