In 1858, a bounty hunter named Schultz seeks out a slave named Django and buys him because he needs him to find some men he is looking for. After finding them, Django wants to find his wife, Broomhilda, who along with him were sold separately by his former owner for trying to escape. Schultz offers to help him if he chooses to stay with him and be his partner. Eventually they learn that she was sold to a plantation in Mississippi. Knowing they can't just go in and say they want her, they come up with a plan so that the owner will welcome them into his home and they can find a way.Written by
In a January 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, Costume Designer Sharen Davis said much of the film's wardrobe was inspired by spaghetti westerns and other works of art. For Django's wardrobe, Davis and Quentin Tarantino watched Bonanza (1959), and referred to it frequently. The pair even hired the hatmaker who designed the hat worn by Little Joe. Davis described Django's look as a "rock-n-roll take on the character". Django's sunglasses were inspired by Charles Bronson's character in The White Buffalo (1977). Davis used Thomas Gainsborough's 1770 oil painting The Blue Boy as a reference for Django's valet outfit. In the final scene, Broomhilda wears a dress similar to that of Evelyn Stewart's character in Blood for a Silver Dollar (1965). Davis said the idea of Calvin Candie's costume came partly from Rhett Butler, and that Don Johnson's signature Miami Vice (1984) look inspired Big Daddy's cream-colored linen suit in the film. Dr. King Schultz's fake chinchilla coat was inspired by Telly Savalas in Kojak (1973). Davis also revealed that many of her costume ideas did not make the final cut of the film, leaving some unexplained characters such as Zoë Bell's tracker, who was intended to drop her bandana to reveal an absent jaw.

Early In the film, when Django and the Dentist are In the Saloon, the Dentist uses a hand-pump to fill the glasses with Beer. Such dispensers need to be pumped several times In order to fill each glass, but here the liquid flows continually as soon as the handle Is opened, which means the Beer must be artificially Carbonated and under pressure. Therefore both the drink and method of delivery are far more modern than what would have been possible In the 1860's. See more »

Absolutely loved every minute of this movie. Usually I'm not too crazy about Tarantino's movies, but this one is definitely the best one I've seen in a long time. The actors were picked perfectly. The overall experience of a movie is amazing. When we first went to watch it, I was a bit skeptical and thought I'd end up leaving an hour into the movie (it's a 3 hr movie), but it grabbed my attention from the very beginning and I didn't even wanna get up to go to the bathroom, afraid to miss something. I'm usually very particular about the movies, nothing can hardly satisfy me, but this one is definitely in the top 5. Soundtrack was perfect. When I got home, I've done some more research on it and loved it even more! Overall, I would highly recommend this film!
