Django Unchained is Quentin Tarantino that chronicles the life of a slave-turned-protege of bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. Specifically, though, the film chronicles the mission on which Django accompanies Schultz to capture the Brittle brothers. After they succesfully complete this mission, Django and his partner hunt the most dangerous criminals of the South, eventually finding themself on the awful plantation of the visious Calvin Candie; the plantation on which Django's long-lost wife is held.
As early as 2007 Tarantino discussed the possibilty of making a spaghetti western set in the pre-Civil War Deep South of the United States. After years of development, Tarantino finally finished the script in mid-2011. A little over a year later, the film was released.
Upon release, the film was met with profound critical acclaim. Says acclaimed critic Roger Ebert: "The film offers one sensational sequence after another, all set around these two intriguing characters who seem opposites but share pragmatic, financial and personal issues." It also currently holds an 88% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, indicating exceptional favoribility. It was also included on several top lists of the year.
