Killers of the Flower Moon

This event has passed

Martin Scorsese’s revisionist epic chronicles the tragic history of the wealthiest community in the Americas, circa 1920. When the Osage Nation in Oklahoma found that they were sitting on an oil field, their fortunes were made. Yet the life expectancy within the tribe plummeted. Into this confusing picture comes Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio), a WWI veteran encouraged to find himself an Osage wife by his uncle, the local sheriff (Robert De Niro). Ernest pays court to Molly (Lily Gladstone) and they fall in love. But Molly’s friends and family continue to die in suspicious circumstances…

Based on David Grann’s best-seller, Killers of the Flower Moon is a powerful and unambiguous indictment of the evil legacy of white supremacy.

A colossal tale of the sociopathy of American history.

Richard Brody, The New Yorker

This is a master artist putting a stamp on not only his own career, but also the entirety of American cinema and, why not, American history, too.

Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

A cruel and baroque American story of love, murder, greed and unspeakable betrayal in 1920s Indian Country, a true-crime epic that Scorsese — with grace, sorrow and sublime filmmaking clarity — has turned into a requiem for the country.

But for a tiny network of environmental crusaders and vigilantes trying to protect its spectacular natural resources, it is more akin to a battlefield.
