Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon has been released in Egyptian cinemas today by Four Star Films, the film’s distributor in Egypt.
Directed and written by Scorsese and co-written by Eric Roth based on David Grann’s bestselling book of the same name, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro and is set at the turn of the 20th century, when oil brought a fortune to the Native American Osage Nation, skyrocketing their wealth overnight.
Consequently, said wealth immediately attracted white interlopers keen on manipulating, extorting, and stealing as much Osage money as they could before resorting to murder. Based on a true story and told through the improbable romance of Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Lily Gladstone), Killers of the Flower Moon is an epic Western crime saga where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal.
The film also stars Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, Janae Collins, Jillian Dion and William Belleau
with Scorsese, Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, and Daniel Lupi serving as producers.
