What is Killers of the Flower Moon About?
Killers of the Flower Moon depicts the story of the Osage Tribe from 1921 to 1925. The Osage people in Oklahoma became wealthy after discovering oil on their predecessors’ land, as they gained staggering profits from the oil deposits. Further, the Osage tribe would be recognized worldwide as one of the wealthiest nations. Moreover, the white neighbors, such as Hale, grew envious of the newly rich Osage Tribe. Hale resorted to cold-bloodedly murdering them to seize their wealth. In 1921, violence erupted, and a rich woman of the Osage tribe was found murdered in the woods. Unfortunately, by 1925 at least sixty affluent members of the Osage tribe had lost their lives.
In addition, the FBI agent, Tom White, and his other colleagues took over the whole investigation process and exposed a witty and complex plot by William Hale, a local cattleman. Further, Tom White uncovered that William Hale persuaded his nephew (Ernest Burkhtar) to tie the knot with an Osage lady, Mollie Kile. It was Hale’s diabolical plan to have possession of the golden land.
However, it is right to claim that the tale’s somber themes, such as envy, murder, greed, and betrayal, will make this movie a thorough suspense and action thriller that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
