Killers of the Flower Moon (2023) Movie Review

Killers of the Flower Moon takes us into the Osage nation in the 1920s. The Osage people have discovered oil and the wealth that comes with it. Then, they learn the real cost of this discovery.

This movie really is excellent. It excels on every level, and all of the creative pieces come together to tell this important tale that’s still relevant to us today. Killers of the Flower Moon is a beautiful example of how to honor people’s stories and culture in a film, something that other productions have failed to do over the years (I’m looking at you, Greenbook).

Lily Gladstone is the MVP of Killers of the Flower Moon. She brings so much to the character Mollie, who is a member of the Osage Nation. Mollie isn’t a big talker, but she is always paying attention. She is wise and sees what’s going on around her.

Gladstone’s eyes say everything in this film. Even when she doesn’t speak, she’s communicating multitudes. And when she does speak, her words are filled with immense emotion and gravity. You hang on every one of her words because they are just that powerful.

I nominate her for all the awards (not that my vote actually counts for anything).

Leonardo DiCaprio also gives a great performance as Ernest. He comes to Osage to work with his uncle, William Hale (Robert De Niro), and ends up falling in love with Mollie. They build a life together and have to walk through hell together. Despite his feelings for Mollie, Ernest makes some very poor and harmful decisions throughout the film. DiCaprio brings so many emotions to that performance, showing all of the different facets of this complex character.

Gladstone and DiCaprio have a chemistry and rapport that works incredibly well on screen. Their dynamic together communicates multitudes, and they balance each other well. It was such a good choice to anchor the movie in their relationship; the characters are interesting, and the performances are stellar.
