Killers of the Flower Moon
Martin Scorsese's epic starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Lily Gladstone, Brendan Fraser and Jesse Plemons.
Martin Scorsese’s period crime opus charts the complex human relationships at the centre of a grand conspiracy against the Native American Osage Nation.
In early 1920s Oklahoma, the discovery of large oil deposits made the Osage Nation incomparably wealthy, and the target of white greed. In his bestselling book, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, David Grann presents a detailed account of the lawmen who uncovered this reign of terror. For the film adaptation, Scorsese and co-writer Eric Roth switch focus to the protagonists of this story, exploring this brutal moment of 20th-century American history through the lives of indigenous woman Mollie (another stunning performance by Lily Gladstone) and her white husband Ernest (a career-best Leonardo DiCaprio) who willingly does the criminal bidding of his nefarious uncle, played with devilish malevolence by Robert De Niro. One of the great chroniclers of American life and an undisputed giant of cinema, Scorsese’s 26th feature is a riveting drama, grand in scope and one of this year’s unmissable big-screen events.
