Quentin Tarantino is back and apparently, better than ever.
Today, the Cannes Film Festival played host to Tarantino’s highly anticipated ninth film, Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood. The film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, follows a popular television actor (DiCaprio) and his stuntman (Pitt) trying to break big in Hollywood during the changing era of 1969. DiCaprio and Pitt’s characters live next door to Sharon Tate (Robbie), who is also trying to make a name for herself in Hollywood. Their worlds are turned upside down when Charles Manson enters the picture.
As the screening for the film ended, the crowd erupted with applause, giving Tarantino and cast a standing ovation. Praise has been directed towards the writing, performances, visuals, and ending. Scroll down below to see the first official reactions for the film!
