The mystery crime film, written and directed by Tarantino, stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

DiCaprio plays the role of Rick Dalton, a former star of a western series, and Pitt plays his longtime friend and stunt double, Cliff Booth. The duo are a couple of Hollywood has-beens that are looking for a way back on top in the movies.

DiCaprio’s character lives next door to Tate, who was a big-time actress at the time, and is played by Margot Robbie.

The ensemble cast also includes Burt Reynolds, Al Pacino, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsh, Dakota Fanning, Lena Dunham, Maya Hawk, Zoe Bell, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and James Marsden among others.

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood takes place during the Hollywood era of 1969,’ Tarantino revealed at Cinema Con 2018 in April in a video posted by someone in attendance. ‘It takes place at the height of the counter-culture explosion; it takes place at the time the hippy revolution and it takes place at the height of new Hollywood. And during this summer we will, little by little- street by street- and block by block, be transforming Los Angeles into the psychedelic era of Hollywood in 1969.’

The story reportedly does not focus specifically on the Manson family or the Tate-LaBianca murders, but instead uses the storyline only as a backdrop.
