DJANGO UNCHAINED Featurette Spotlights Leonardo DiCaprio's Calvin Candie

If you haven't seen Django Unchained yet, you should get out to the theater and check it out! It really was a great film, and Leonardo DiCaprio gives a hell of a performance that's sure to get an Oscar nomination. A new featurette was released recently that focuses on the character he plays, Calvin Candie, in which Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington talk about how insanely good his performance was. It's definitely the craziest and darkest performance of his career. He was evil as hell. If you saw the movie, what did you think of DiCaprio's performance? 

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, "Django Unchained" stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive. 

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. 

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...
