Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
The film is based on the real story of the brutal murder of the pregnant 26-year-old actress Sharon Tate in 1969, the wife of Roman Polanski, one of the main Hollywood directors of that period. That night changed the world and in many ways made it the way we know it today.
One of the main characters, actor Rick Dalton, whose role is performed by Leonardo DiCaprio, is against hippies. As Tarantino says, Rick is the embodiment of all his worst qualities. It also symbolizes the conservative part of America, which is frightened by radical changes.
The film’s base is Rick’s relationship with his understudy Cliff Booth, performed by Brad Pitt. They are good friends, but also rivals. They live in the Hollywood Hills in a neighboring house with Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski.

The film was shot in long takes (about eight minutes) and edited in such a way as to look like a single indivisible take, so the camera seems to be following the main characters non-stop.
The plot focuses on a ten-year-old German boy who has just lost his father. He cannot find a place for himself in this world, and his mother believes that all his problems are only fictitious.
He finds salvation in communication with an imaginary friend Adolf Hitler, who is very different from the world-infamous Fuhrer. But one day the boy finds out that his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in the house.
