Movie Monday: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

Rick Dalton rose to fame and money as the star of a 1950s television Western but now finds himself trying to find meaningful employment in a Hollywood he no longer recognizes. Cliff Booth, his easygoing best buddy and veteran stunt double, spends the majority of his time drinking and hanging out with him. Rick also lives next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate, the filmmaker and aspiring actress whose lives have been irrevocably changed by the Manson Family.

Quentin Tarantino's comedy-drama film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a 2019 comedy-drama film written and directed by him. It is a co-production between the United States, the United Kingdom, and China, produced by Columbia Pictures, Bona Film Group, Heyday Films, and Visiona Romantica, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie among a big ensemble cast.

Quentin Tarantino's eighth film (including both Kill Bill films as one and excluding his participation in Four Rooms) is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It's an ensemble drama with an exceptional cast, even by Tarantino's standards. It's also a rosy picture of Hollywood in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a formative period for the maverick filmmaker's imagination.

Quentin Tarantino released a novel based on the original movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Quentin Tarantino's debut work is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: A Novel. It's a novelization of his upcoming film of the same name, which will be released in 2019. It debuted at the top of the fiction best-seller list at The New York Times. Quentin Tarantino is the ultimate divisive personality in cinema. There is nothing even close to a consensus on the man when it comes to his extreme brutality, outspoken public personality, or portrayal of women and people of color in his films.
