Once Upon a time in Hollywood won in two categories, one for Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt and the second one for the Best Production Design in the 92nd Academy Awards. The storyline was appreciated by fans and critics alike. Further reports suggest that the film has a daunting plotline which was inspired by the true stories that followed the creative upheaval with Hollywood authorities in 1969.

The film has three main characters namely Leonardi Di Capri essaying Rick Dalton, Bradd Pitt in Cliff Booth’s shoes and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. With massive production design, the film tried to give justice to the creative inhibitions of the 60s and line up the story with amusing takes on revenge stories, including these main roles. Quentin Tarantino, the one who helmed the film, is also known for his love for grudge ridden stories. The film definitely delivered justice to the action, drama and bloodshed.

The real story behind 'One Upon A Time In Hollywood'

However, the bloodshed is a truly depressing story of the Sharon Tate, an upcoming actress, who back in the 60s was brutally murdered while pregnant with the child of then screen-director Roman Polanski. The story was spine chilling but true. The culprit of the heinous crime was Charles Manson who was accused of murdering Sharon and five others. Once Upon a time in Hollywood, however, deviates from the exact story, but remains equally terrifying. The original murder story is the result of Charles Manson going on a killing spree along with his cult gang. Charles Manson and four others were convicted in 1971 and two of them died behind bars. According to multiple reports, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is trying to tell the story of the cultural revolution of the 1960s, along with the murder story.
