There is already Oscar buzz surrounding the film, with a few of the main actors up for what looks like Oscar nominations and the film isn’t even out yet?
Described as homage to the spaghetti Western, the film is set against the backdrop of slavery and — not surprising for a Tarantino title — doesn’t shy away from extreme violence, including a much-discussed scene of African-American actress Kerry Washington being lashed with a bullwhip.
We shot it on a real plantation, in the slave area quarters called shack row,” Tarantino told CBC News on Monday, noting that it was one of the first sequences of that type his crew shot for the film and praising Washington’s performance.
If you’re a fan or not, this is a must see. Presale tix are now available throughout the USA, don’t miss out.
