Tarantino took viewers back to 1969 Hollywood – the bright sunset stripe, the affluence of the celebrity and the crimes of the Manson family. Margot Robbie played the late actor Sharon Tate. In good old Tarantino fashion, he put his own spin on a landmark event.
Brad Pitt plays Cliff Booth in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood; DiCaprio was Rick Dalton. Cliff works for Rick, as he hasn’t done any stunts in years. The characters became best friends while working on the sets of reward law.
