Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (18)

Release Date : 14th August 2019

Quentin Tarantino’s latest film “Once upon a Time in Hollywood”  is about fading actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo De Caprio) and his best friend and stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) in the 1960's Hollywood. It certainly delivers in transporting you back to the 1960's. The storyline bounces around a bit and is sometimes confusing but eventually catches up and you can link them. There were also some funny laugh out loud moments. Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) played her part very well, a sweet, lively character. There was not much of a build up to the last 15 minutes, (which is where all the action happens), and I thought that there was an interesting twist to true events that occurred historically.   I enjoyed the film. However on reflection, it left many questions unanswered.  

I give this film 4/5 stars.
