DiCaprio plays Rick Dalton, the washed-up star of a Western TV series who's trying to carve out a new niche for himself in the industry, while Pitt plays his friend and stunt double Cliff Booth. And they have famous next-door neighbors: Sharon and director Roman Polanski.
The film reunites Tarantino with his "Django Unchained" star DiCaprio and his "Inglorious Basterds" star Pitt. There's even a wink at the latter movie, when DiCaprio's Rick Dalton is filming a scene where he burns Nazi officers alive.
Tarantino recently penned an open letter pleading with Cannes attendees not to spoil the film.
