Roman Polanski’s wife criticized writer/director Quentin Tarantino on Friday for not consulting with her husband on his new film, which features the tragic story of the murder of Polanski’s wife Sharon Tate.
Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” just debuted at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. But Emmanuelle Seigner, Polanski’s wife, said in a French-speaking post on Instagram that Tarantino was “using the tragic life of someone, and then walk over them” to tell a story.

Tate was murdered by members of the Manson family in 1969. Seigner said Tarantino would have spoken with Polanski about the film’s treatment of that event.
“I’m just saying that it is not worth the trouble they (in Hollywood) to make a film that takes Roman and his tragic story… while at the same time they have made him a pariah. And all that without consulting him, of course,” she wrote.
