This ode to the Hollywood of 1969 is definitely not Quentin Tarantino’s usual. It’s as unrestrained, colorful, and full of cursing as any of his other movies, but it doesn’t have the sort of over-the-top violence that can turn some people off (it’s still violent, just not quite so ridiculously so as some of his work). Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt play an aging TV star and his long-time stunt double, trying to make it work in a Hollywood that they barely recognize anymore. Margot Robbie plays the star’s still-famous next door neighbor, and a wide net of famous and not-so-famous faces take the part of classic Hollywood characters real and imagined.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood opens Friday, August 16, and plays Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday at 7:30 only (there are no early shows on the weekend due to the length of the movie).
