Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood

In addition to multiple other accolades, Brad Pitt won an Academy Award as best supporting actor for writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s lavishly praised 2019 comedy-drama, which cast Pitt as the stunt double of a Hollywood superstar (Leonardo DiCaprio), both of whom are nostalgic for the rapidly vanishing golden age of Hollywood. The huge ensemble cast also includes Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch, Margaret Qualley, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern and Damian Lewis, many of them playing familiar Tinseltown figures. This was Luke Perry’s final film.

Howard also examines several cross-cultural dishes enjoyed by diverse communities.
