Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
- US / UK
- 2h 45min
- Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
- Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio
- UK release: 14 August 2019
Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Quentin Tarantino's ninth feature film is a fun-filled tapestry of stories set in the summer of 1969 - the height of 'hippy Hollywood'. Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) - the former star of a western TV series - and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) are both struggling to find their feet again in a Tinseltown they no longer recognise. But Rick does have a very famous neightbour - Valley of the Dolls star Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie). A cinephile's dream, Tarantino's comedic 1960s Hollywood odyssey is packed with iconic figures and studio hijinks - awash with his signature irreverent, meticulously soundtracked style.
