Leonardo DiCaprio’s collaborations with Martin Scorsese (The Aviator, Shutter Island, Gangs of New York) have been legendary, and he is also seeing success with Quentin Tarantino, one of cinema’s most visionary auteurs. The pair previously worked on Django Unchained, and now they join forces (along with Tarantino vet Brad Pitt) on Once Upon A Time … In America.
Though such people as Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and Bruce Lee (Mike Moh) are part of this film’s universe, the picture is a resonant and bittersweet homage to the entertainment industry, with DiCaprio an actor named Rick Dalton. With his best days behind him, Dalton tries his best to keep his head above water.
