Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - Tarantino’s ninth directorial - had its premiere at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. The film releases worldwide in July this year. The film is an ode to the Hollywood of his childhood and explores how the Golden Age of the industry came to an end with the murder of actor Sharon Tate at the hands of the Manson Family cult in 1969. It features Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton - an ageing, out-of-work actor, with Brad Pitt playing his long-time stunt double named Cliff Booth. The two characters happen to be the neighbours of Tate, essayed by Margot Robbie in the film.
