ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD
From Quentin Tarantino with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie …
Worn by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood immerses us in 1969, in the middle of New Hollywood. Rick Dalton, star on the decline of a western television series and Cliff Booth, his understudy, try as best they can to stay on the circuit. Director Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate move in next to Rick Dalton’s house. Nostalgic, cinephile and full of humor, Quentin Tarantino pays an inspired tribute to Hollywood in the late 60s with two actors at the top (and a well-deserved Oscar for best supporting role for Brad Pitt).
