Killers of the Flower Moon is, unfortunately, based on a true story. It focuses on the murders of several Osage Indians in Oklahoma a century ago, when oil was discovered on the tribe’s land. Martin Scorsese is connected to the movie in several capacities — he’s a co-producer, he co-wrote the screenplay, and he directed the film — and he spoke to us about why he felt so strongly about making the film and telling its story.
