Based on David Grann’s broadly lauded best-selling book, KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON is set in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror. Directed by Martin Scorsese and screenplay by Eric Roth and Scorsese, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins and Jillian Dion.
“KILLERS moves at a breathless pace, marked by jolting elisions and sudden turns of events, evoking the web of evil into which Ernest is quickly, if imperceptibly, drawn. Scorsese intently observes the arachnid manner with which King turns Ernest from outsider to insider, which is accomplished in the insidious span of a single welcoming conversation.” —Richard Brody, The New Yorker “A towering achievement of immense empathy and startling historical truths, KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON shows a master at work on a level few can achieve.” —Hoai-Tran Bui, Inverse
