Margot Robbie Basks in the "Hollywood" Bygone Era in "Once Upon a Time"

In Quentin Tarantino’s critically acclaimed drama Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, Oscar-nominee Margot Robbie plays an idealized version of real-life 1960s ingenue Sharon Tate.  She is married to Roman Polanski, whose film Rosemary’s Baby has made him the hottest director in town; they’re on every party list, living the high life.   

Set in 1969, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood recreates the time and place of Tarantino’s formative years, when everything – the United States, the city of Los Angeles, the Hollywood star system, even the movies themselves – was at an inflection point, and no one knew where the pieces would land.  All this is not entirely dissimilar from the changes buffeting Hollywood today.

At the center is Rick Dalton, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Rick had been the star of “Bounty Law,” a hit television series in the 50s and early 60s, but his prophesied transition to motion picture stardom never materialized. Now, as Hollywood moves towards a hippie aesthetic, Rick worries that his time has passed – and wonders if there’s still a chance for him.

Her desire to go outside intensifies when a mysterious ice cream truck came to their neighborhood and gets in touch with her.

Mina-Anud - A Drug Movie Unlike The Others

There has been a lot of drug-inspired movies since Duterte was elected as President, and most of them are gritty, dark, and bloody which wants to depict the complicated and deadly world of drugs, cartels, and the market.

Mina-Anud comes at the time that people seems to be fed up of the same theme yet they want to present the situation in a whole new light. The movie brought an unusual pairing of fisherfolks, surfers, and cocaine. Though there was recent real life news of this happening on coastal provinces, the film wants to expand it into a story that will make it a movie worth watching for.

Experience the Pivotal Year 1969 When You Watch "Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood"

There will never be another year like 1969, and Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood captures the turbulence and uncertainties of this pivotal period in global history.

The 1960s was the height of a creative and political counter-cultural movement in America. Life was fun, love was free, the music was new and everywhere, the poetry was deep and thought-provoking and everyone believed change was in the air.

But by 1969 the peaceful façade of the movement was crumbling.  People were angry, about the Vietnam war, about civil rights and Americans were still reeling from the 1968 assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Despite the moon landing – 1969’s great crowning achievement -  the growing darkness culminated on August 9, 2019, when a band of hippies lead by self-proclaimed messiah Charles Manson broke into actress Sharon Tate’s Bel Air home and murdered the 8-months pregnant star and 4 of her housemates.  The murders shocked and terrified not only the Hollywood community but the world, and the peace-loving flower-power 1960s were officially over.  Their story became one of the most tragic legends of a changing world.

Ki-Woo, the Kims’ eldest son, with the help of his sister Ki-Jung, forges a fake diploma and gets the opportunity to work at the hilltop mansion of the very wealthy Park family. However, greed threatens the security of his job, as well as the safety of his own family and the people around him.
