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. Martin Scorsese’s brilliant adaptation of the best-selling David Grann book recounts a horrific true crime, where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, Mollie Kyle, Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons. The 1920s murders launched one of the first major F.B.I. investigations under J. Edgar Hoover.
“For his telling, Scorsese has drawn on assorted genres — the movie is at once a romance, a western, a domestic drama, a whodunit and, finally, a police procedural — that effortlessly mix, ebb and flow.” — Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
“Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro both turn in superb work… But Gladstone, in the rare Scorsese film that gives center stage to a female character, is the emotional core here, and it’s her face that stays etched in our memory.” — Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press
