The film takes place in “Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood.”
Tarantino described “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” in a statement last year, calling it, “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor … Sharon Tate.”
In July 2017, early reports of the film described its script as focused on the murder of actress Sharon Tate by Charles Manson’s followers.
While Tarantino’s February statement mentions Sharon Tate as a player in the movie, Tarantino previously said that the film would not center on Manson but on the year 1969. In fact, the trailer makes no overt mention of the Manson family.
