At the turn of the 20th century, oil brought a fortune to the Osage Nation, who became some of the richest people in the world overnight. The wealth of these Native Americans immediately attracted white interlopers, who manipulated, extorted, and stole as much Osage money as they could before resorting to murder. Based on a true story and told through the improbable romance of Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Lily Gladstone), “Killers of the Flower Moon” is an epic western crime saga, where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal. Also starring Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, and Jillian Dion, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese from a screenplay by Eric Roth and Martin Scorsese, based on David Grann’s best-selling book.
Running Time: 3 hours, 26 minutes
“Go see Killers of the Flower Moon if, for no other reason, than it’s important to know the dark side of our country’s history, especially in our treatment of Native Americans. It starts with oil on an Indian reservation. Oil, yes, as in fool’s gold, and some white men arriving and contriving to gain control and ownership of the oil by marrying four Native American women and then killing them to gain ownership of their share of the land. Enter our amazing Mollie Burkhart, a member of the Osage Nation, who tries to save her community from the murders fueled by oil and greed. Her husband? Why, Leonardo DiCaprio, of course, who pairs with Robert De Niro (his best work in years) to star in the tale of more than sixty people being murdered before the FBI finally shows up to unravel the plan.”
