Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Movie Review
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: An Attempt By Leonardo DiCaprio And Brad Pitt To Bring The Past To Present
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tells the story of yesteryears when the actors used to share a close bond with their doubles. Those were the days when actor-stuntman relationship gossip was common among movie goers.
Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a superstar of 50s but lost his stardom to aging and the boom in the showbiz industry. But his stunt double and buddy Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) leads an independent life in his trailer. He lives with his pit bull, Brandy. Luck brings them closer and they again unite to take a round of Hollywood reminiscing their old days. Booth becomes his driver and takes him to old streets and offices but they find no face they recognize. But the luck gives them hope when French-Polish director Roman Polanski and his wife – the actress Sharon Tate become next door neighbors of Dalton. The actor-stunt duo tried to befriend the director and his wife in comic ways.
