Quentin Tarantino‘s anticipated movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has finally arrived. The film stars some of the biggest names in entertainment including Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, and has been one of the most talked about movies this month.
Following its release Shannon Lee, daughter of Bruce Lee has publicly commented on the way her father was portrayed in the movie, expressing her disappointment. "[He] comes across as an arrogant asshole who was full of hot air, and not someone who had to fight triple as hard as any of those people did to accomplish what was naturally given to so many others," she told The Wrap, adding that it was heartbreaking sitting in the theatre and "listen to people laugh at my father."
“I can understand all the reasoning behind what is portrayed in the movie. I understand that the two characters [Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt] are antiheroes, and this is sort of like a rage fantasy of what would happen … and they’re portraying a period that clearly had a lot of racism and exclusion,” she said, and added “I understand they want to make the Brad Pitt character this super-badass who could beat up Bruce Lee. But they didn’t need to treat him in the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive.”
