U.S., 2019, 161 min, 70mm, Dir. Quentin Tarantino, Rated R, Sony Pictures Releasing
“This is a tender, rapturous film, both joyous and melancholy, a reverie for a lost past and a door that opens to myriad imagined possibilities…This is a welcoming picture, not an alienating one, an open door into a vanished world that still feels vital.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Time
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth, and arguably most personal, film from the writer-director is a paean to Hollywood’s golden age, an era whose end was marked by gruesome and unspeakable crimes. Once Upon a Time is all about the power of movies to entertain us, to inspire us, and ultimately to shape who we are. CGAC hosts the exclusive South Florida 70mm presentation.
