Tuesday morning, I was excited to take myself to go see the first showing of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is a film I’ve been looking forward to seeing, a LOT!
Taken from IMDb.com: “A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.“
I won’t dive into too much detail since the film is new and some readers may wish to see it! What drew me in immediately when I watched the trailer and learned of this movie, is that the plot intertwines with the Manson murders.
I found the film to be beautifully nostalgic, and it was a mix of comedy and a thriller. There were several times I laughed out loud, and other times I felt intensely nervous with a chill down my spine.
I loved the 1960’s music they incorporated into the film, and how it went fittingly with the scenes. I also loved both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio’s characters, as they made a great team and their very different personalities created such rich chemistry (it’s hard to choose a favorite, as I adored both characters in different ways).
I was also utterly charmed by Margot Robbie’s depiction of Sharon Tate. She captured her sweet, innocent, playful essence in a dreamlike way.
I’ve never felt SO SATISFIED by a film’s ending before!!!!!! I literally wanted to stand up and cheer. I left the theater with a big fat smile on my face. ❤️
I’m liking my pattern mixture of stripes and florals – add some sparkly red snap hair clips – and you have a super retro look. ❤️
I’m really happy I saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood; it was the highlight of my entire week. 😊
See ya next time!
