Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, that tells the story of the Manson murders, just had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
According to the NY Times, the film was,
“Well-received at its first press screening — no cheers but no jeers — the film revisits that crime through parallel, not-quite equal story lines: one involving Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and the other centering on her next-door neighbor on Cielo Drive, Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), a television star…. Rick spends much of his time with Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), his best pal and sometimes stunt double….as they tool around Los Angeles in a cream-colored Cadillac, the radio blasting.”
But we all know what lies ahead for Sharon and this lost Hollywood that Tarantino laments.
