The end of the year/beginning of the new year is almost always a great time for movie-lovers, and this year is no exception. Even with the releases of critically applauded, “Lincoln”, “Argo”, and “Skyfall”, the end of the year was not a letdown for cinema. December saw the releases of the anticipated “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and the classic story of the downtrodden, “Les Miserables”.
Arguably, the film sparking the most conversation this season is Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”. The movie is an homage to twentieth century spaghetti westerns, but has much more controversial and dense content than early films of the genre, namely the violence surrounding slavery and racism in the antebellum American South.
The film tells the story of Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave turned emancipated bounty hunter with the help of a charismatic German immigrant (Christopher Waltz), who is also a bounty hunter. Django seeks to save his enslaved and abused wife (Kerry Washington) and get revenge against a depraved plantation owner (Leonardo Dicaprio) and his trusted house slave (Samuel L. Jackson).
With talented actors under the direction of expert writer and director Tarantino, the casting and production of the film is drawing few complaints (although the shocking content is definitely drawing some criticism). The icing on the cake for the movie is the fantastic costume design of Sharen Davis. The sprinkles on top of the icing are the hats that were used to complete the costumes. Although the actual hats used in the movie were custom one-of-a-kinds, hats.com has some awesome styles that are incredibly similar to some of the hats in Django Unchained. Check these out!
