Plot

In the summer of 1969 in Los Angeles, alcoholic actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio, 'The Wolf of Wall Street') and his long-term stuntman and best friend, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt, 'Ad Astra'), watch their fame diminish as Rick struggles to find meaning in the changing landscape of Hollywood after a successful career as a leading actor in 1950s Westerns. Living next door to Dalton is Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie, 'I, Tonya') and her husband Roman Polanski (Rafal Zawierucha, 'Jack Strong'), who Dalton hopes can propel him back towards stardom with their connections to this "new" Hollywood that he is struggling to recognise and in which he doesn't feel he belongs. In the days approaching the famous Tate-LaBianca murders, Cliff notices that Spahn Ranch, a former filming location for himself and Rick, has turned into a hippy commune that revolves around Charles Manson (Damon Herriman, 'Mr Inbetween'). In this reimagining of 1960s Hollywood and the Manson family, Quentin Tarantino rewrites the brutal murder of Sharon Tate and her unborn child whilst also penning a love letter to Old Hollywood.

'One Upon a Time in Hollywood' is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Also joining the cast are Emile Hirsch ('Into the Wild'), Austin Butler ('The Shannara Chronicles'), Dakota Fanning ('The Alienist'), Al Pacino ('The Godfather') and Margaret Qualley ('Fosse/Verdon').
