There is no middle ground when it comes to a Quentin Tarantino film. In the eyes of the beholder it is either a hit or a miss. It is either to be loved or to be hated. But when it is a hit, loved or hated, it is a hit. His latest is one of those bullseye hits and his most cinephile yet.
Actor Rick Dalton gained fame and fortune by starring in a 1950s television Western, but is now struggling to find meaningful work in a Hollywood that he doesn’t recognize anymore. He spends most of his time drinking and palling around with Cliff Booth, his easygoing best friend and longtime stunt double. Rick also happens to live next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate; the filmmaker and budding actress whose futures will forever be altered by members of the Manson Family.
Winner of 3 Golden Globes, including Best Supporting Actor for the indescribably brilliant Brad Pitt at the peak of his career, Best Screenplay Tarantino and Best Comedy Motion Picture. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is destined for Oscar glory as well with 10 nominations including Leonardo Di Caprio for Best Actor, Brad Pitt for Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, Quentin Tarantino and Cinematography, Costume, Best Motion Picture, Screenplay, Sound & Sound Mixing to name a few.
