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.
The film has received Academy Awards nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio), Best Supporting Actor (Brad Pitt), Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing. Best Costume Design, Best Production Design, and Best Sound Editing.
“A bittersweet, complex, conversation-starting look back at the film business at the close of a tumultuous decade, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also works as a strong argument for why it’s too soon for Tarantino to pack it in.” – Keith Phipps, Slate
