KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON
Based on David Grann’s broadly lauded best-selling book and directed by film legend Martin Scorsese, “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.
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 and Mollie Kyle, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is an epic western crime saga, where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal.
