From the first shots of Killers of the Flower Moon (a scene of jubilation in slow motion), the magnificent sets and historical reconstruction already show breathtaking images. We can guess the scale of the staging and the extraordinary ambition of Martin Scorsese's new film. The promise of a dark and epic western.
Killers of the Flower Moon, ever 2010
Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro play Ernest Burkhart and his uncle William Hale, respectively. The two actors seem particularly involved. Killers of the Flower Moon will mark the tenth collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro since their very first film together, Mean Streets, in 1974.
The official synopsis states: “In the 1920s, several members of the Native American Osage tribe in Oklahoma were murdered after finding oil on their land. A series of brutal murders known today as the Reign of Terror. The FBI is investigating”.
