Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film is a sprawling tale of counterculture California and the final days of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Set in 1969’s LA, the two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a Western TV series and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they no longer recognize, but Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour, Sharon Tate.

Tarantino has said “I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that doesn’t exist anymore.” Cinematographer Robert Richardson added, “I think the tone of it is – it’s difficult to describe because it’s very fresh, but it oscillates between humorous, serious, spooky; it’s playful. It’s not easily describable.”
