Los Angeles 1969. TV actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and long-time stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) are working in an industry that is moving on without them. The new Hollywood is embodied by Rick’s next-door neighbour — rising star Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie). Eventually their fates will collide in the most unexpected way.
