When a spate of mysterious murders sweeps through the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma in the early 1920’s, the Bureau of Investigation (an early 20th-century precursor to the FBI) sends agents into the frontier to investigate the matter. The murders coincide with the discovery of massive oil deposits on the Osage land, and the murders seem to be tied to the newfound wealth that begins to permeate the once-poverty-stricken tribespeople.
With its perfect genre blend of drama, Western, and crime noir, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon is the highly-anticipated adaptation of the critically-acclaimed 2017 non-fiction book of the same name. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Jesse Plemmons, and Lily Gladstone.
