What Can He Say? He Tries
In Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood (2019), our main characters Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth have a true friendship. No matter how much fame and fortune may try to break them up, they will always remain friends. Tarantino has their friendship come full circle with two scenes: one at the beginning and one at the end.
At the beginning of Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood, Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt, is questioned about his integrity and friendship with Rick Dalton, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. In answer to the question, Booth replies ‘I try’. At the end of the film, their friendship comes full circle when Dalton tells Booth ‘You’re a good friend, Cliff,’ to which Booth again says ‘I try.’ At that point, most people probably forgot all about that first scene.
