Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Start the new year off with a bang with Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, the critically-acclaimed historical epic Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt feature as TV star duo Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, with Rick as the star and Cliff as his stunt double. With Rick’s glory days as the lead in a 50s Western show long behind him, he struggles to find new prospects and revitalize his career. At the same time, he and Booth keep having run-ins with a group of hippies led by one Charles Manson, whose visions of an apocalyptic war inevitably bring them into conflict with our Hollywood heroes.

Hailed as one of the best films of the year by Time Magazine, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a hypnotic slow-burner peppered with moments of surprising hilarity.


“It is Tarantino’s best, bravest and most confrontationally impudent movie since Pulp Fiction.” – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

“A bittersweet, complex, conversation-starting look back at the film business at the close of a tumultuous decade, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also works as a strong argument for why it’s too soon for Tarantino to pack it in.” – Keith Phipps, Slate

“Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt deliver the most emotionally vulnerable performances of their careers as soon-to-be has-beens in 1969 Hollywood.” – Daniel Barnes, Dare Daniel
