SOUL
2020, Walt Disney Pictures, 100 min, USA, Dir: Pete Docter, Kemp Powers

What is it that makes you...YOU? Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) is a middle-school band teacher who has a passion for jazz who is offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with one of the greats. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Joe teams up with a precocious soul (voice of Tina Fey) who has never understood the appeal of the human experience, hoping that if he can help her, maybe he can make it back to Earth in time for his big gig.


DJANGO UNCHAINED
2012, Swank, 165 min, USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars 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 (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles, and though success leads Schultz to free Django, the two continue to work together. Through it all, Django remains focused on one goal: rescuing the wife (Kerry Washington) he lost to the slave trade – a quest that leads to Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of the infamous plantation “Candyland.”
