Killers Of The Flower Moon, what the film is about
‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’ tells of one of the most monstrous crimes in the history of the United States of America: in the 1920s the Indians of the Osage Nation found themselves having the greatest wealth per capita in the world when large oil fields were discovered in their lands. A fortune that soon turned into tragedy, when one by one they became victims of mysterious murders. The investigations were entrusted to the newborn FBI, who, however, managed to solve only a part of it.
Historians’ belief is that the killings were hatched by whites intending to appropriate the wealth of the Indians: is the thesis contained for example in the essay ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’, written by David Grann and used by the screenwriter Eric Roth as his primary source. According to Grann’s reconstruction, the murders were many more than those discovered by the FBI, but at least the arrest and subsequent conviction of breeder William Hale (who will be played by Robert De Niro in the film: the role of Leonardo DiCaprio) has not yet been specified).
When we see it on Apple TV +
Martin Scorsese’s intention is to shoot the film in Oklahoma, that is, in the same places where the true facts told a century ago. The start of filming, however, was postponed to a later date and depends on the evolution of the Coronavirus pandemic. With a little luck we could still watch ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’ during 2021, presumably in the last months of the year.
Beyond the exit, distribution by Apple TV + is a move that confirms the intention of the streaming service to compete openly with competitors Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. We will see how the latter will respond and especially Netflix, which in 2019 had distributed Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ and who seemed to be in pole position in the race to win ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’.
