Based on David Grann’s best-selling nonfiction book, Killers of the Flower Moon tells of how, 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. The crime saga is told through the improbable romance of Ernest Burkhart (DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Gladstone).
The cast includes Jesse Plemons, John Lithgow, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, and Jillian Dion. Scorsese directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with Oscar-winning scribe Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Dune).
Killers of the Flower Moon will be released in Australian cinemas on October 19th and U.S. cinemas on October 20th.
