Quentin Tarantino's new movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood premiered during the Cannes Film Festival and received a seven-minute standing ovation from the audience.

The film is set in Hollywood in 1969 and tells the story of a stunt man and a TV actor, whose lives became entangled with the Manson family. The movie stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning and Kurt Russell.

The highly-anticipated film was, on the whole, well received by critics, with the audience standing and cheering for seven minutes after the movie ended, according to Deadline.

Following the premiere, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood received plenty of praise on Twitter, with Pitt and DiCaprio both mentioned for their exceptional performances, while the production was also referred to as Tarantino's "most tender film". It did receive some criticism however for its lack of female characters.






Although a new trailer was released this week, much of the plot still remains under wraps and will continue to do so as Tarantino and the cast have asked critics not to release any spoilers about how the movie plays out.

Robbie posted the request on her Instagram account yesterday morning with the caption #NoSpoilersInHollywood.


Tarantino premiered Pulp Fiction at Cannes 25 years ago and went on to win the coveted Palme d'Or.
