Plot

In the beginning of the 20th century the Osage Nation discovered oil in North America and managed to obtain a fortune, becoming one of the richest people on Earth. This sudden wealth caught the attention of white intruders that manipulated, extorted and stole to obtain their achievements, and finally killed them. Based on true events, 'Killers of the Flower Moon' inspires in the homonym novel by David Grann and narrates a tragic story of crime in the wild West through the perspective of an improbable romance, that of the white Ernest Burkhart with osage Mollie Kyle. True love, treason and power cross their paths in this story directed by the Oscar winner Martin Scorsese.

Scorsese ('Taxi Driver', 'GoodFellas', 'The Irishman') writes the script with Eric Roth ('Forrest Gump', 'Dune', 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button') in this production by Apple Studios. The cast stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, John Lithgow, Brendan Fraser, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion and Pat Healy. Photography is lead by cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, who already worked with Scorsese and DiCaprio in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and has participated in films like 'Brokeback Mountain', 'Babel', 'Argo' and 'Passengers'. He's been Oscar nominated three times.
