Killers of the Flower Moon: Cast list

Hamilton and Cara Jade Myers as Anna.
Is Killers of the Flower Moon a true story?
Yes. Killers of the Flower Moon is based on a book by David Grann titled Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, which detailed true events.
While some changes have been made to the material in the film adaptation, the story is indeed based on actual happenings.
The story focuses on William King Hale and nephew Ernest Burkhart’s plan to marry into, and then kill, numerous members of the Osage Nation – due to the discovery of oil on the community’s land.
At the heart of the story is the relationship between Osage woman Mollie Kyle and white businessman, Ernest Burkhart, and the betrayal that Burkhart commits against his wife.
As Time has reported, Scorsese said the following of the film and its story:
“What I wanted to capture, ultimately, was the very nature of the virus or the cancer that creates this sense of a kind of easygoing genocide.
“When there is betrayal that deep, and we know for a fact that it was that way, there’s our story.”
What’s the Killers of the Flower Moon movie length?
As we mentioned earlier, the film is a long one. It runs for a total of 3 hours and 26 minutes, which some have certainly questioned. Suppose the benefit of streaming the film at home is that you can have an intermission and stretch your legs if you’d like a little break!
