Quentin Tarantino‘s ninth feature film is a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate. A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles. With Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern, Emile Hirsch, Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Al Pacino.
“Bolstered by strong performances and immersive production design, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is an introspective and rewarding film from Tarantino.” (Screen Rant)
“The filmmaker may be on a mission to get everything right about 1969, down to the sounds and smells, but he’s also inviting us to smoke a little wrongness.” (New Yorker)
“You might say Tarantino’s oeuvre is a box of chocolates: Some of them are more bitter and unpleasant than others, but they’re all still chocolate. ‘Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood’ might be the tastiest one in the box.” (NPR)
