Apple Original Films Drops Exclusive Featurette: A Glimpse Inside Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’

MANILA, Philippines—As the 20th century dawned, the Osage Nation struck a fortune with oil, catapulting them into the ranks of the world’s wealthiest. However, their newfound wealth drew the attention of opportunistic outsiders who resorted to manipulation, extortion, and even murder to claim Osage fortunes as their own. “Killers of the Flower Moon,” a gripping tale rooted in historical truth, unfolds through the unlikely romance of Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Lily Gladstone).

It’s an epic Western crime saga where genuine love intersects with unthinkable betrayal, featuring the stellar performances of Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons. Directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese, the screenplay is a collaboration between Eric Roth and Martin Scorsese, inspired by David Grann’s best-selling book.
