Lily Gladstone Said About ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’: This film Is The Answer To The Many Trauma That Native Women Feel!

Killers Of The Flower Moon: In an interview published Tuesday, the Golden Globe winner also stressed that she didn’t “want to bring heat back on” her ‘Reservation Dogs’ co-star, while also noting that “ultimately, Osage reaction is what I care about the most.”

Lily Gladstone is defending her Reservation Dogs co-star Devery Jacobs‘ right to her opinion about Killers of the Flower Moon, Martin Scorsese’s take on the Osage murders.

Killers Of The Flower Moon, The Golden Globe winner briefly addressed the Echo star’s comments about the film, in which Jacobs described the experience of watching it as “hellfire.” The film chronicles the “reign of terror,” a string of unsolved murders by white Americans as part of a plot to steal the wealth of the Osage tribe, which retained the mineral rights, including oil leases, on their reservation.

This was carried out in part by white men marrying women of the tribe and becoming guardians of their Osage partner’s estate. In the film, Gladstone plays Mollie Burkhart, an Osage woman who is targeted alongside her family by her husband, Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio), for their oil headrights on their Oklahoma reservation.

Killers Of The Flower Moon, In a thread of posts shared on X (formerly known as Twitter), Jacobs wrote, “Imagine the worst atrocities committed against yr ancestors, then having to sit thru a movie explicitly filled w/ them, w/ the only respite being 30min long scenes of murderous white guys talking about/planning the killings.”

Gladstone told Rolling Stone that she and Jacobs are friends, with the latter allowing the Killers of the Flower Moon star to crash “on her couch in Toronto when Certain Women played at TIFF.” As a fellow Native woman, Gladstone expressed that she did not “want to bring heat back on [Jacobs] for this because I think that’s unfair. Her reaction is hers.”

Killers Of The Flower Moon, The Unknown Country star and writer went on to add that reactions like Jacobs’ are “a response to a lot of trauma that particularly Native women feel seeing these things for the first time,” before noting that she herself “had a lot of time acclimating myself to the script.

Killers Of The Flower Moon, “The Osage people have had their lives to understand this history,” she continued. “The process of making this movie gave a lot of people a chance to speak. Ultimately, Osage reaction is what I care about the most.”

Killers Of The Flower Moon, While much of the buzz around the film praised its Indigenous representation, Jacobs was not the only person to speak up about the film’s white-led perspective, with Christopher Cote — the film’s Osage language consultant — telling The Hollywood Reporter at the film’s L.A. premiere that after seeing the film, he had “some strong opinions.”

“As an Osage, I really wanted this to be from the perspective of Mollie and what her family experienced, but I think it would take an Osage to do that,” Cote said. “Martin Scorsese, not being Osage, I think he did a great job representing our people, but this history is being told almost from the perspective of Ernest Burkhart, and they kind of give him this conscience and kind of depict that there’s love. But when somebody conspires to murder your entire family, that’s not love. That’s not love, that’s just beyond abuse.”

Killers Of The Flower Moon, Last Sunday, Gladstone won the Golden Globe in the best performance by a female actor in a motion picture — drama category for her role in the film, marking a first for the Indigenous acting community and awards show. She is expected to be among the Oscars’ best actress nominees and is currently a frontrunner to take the Academy Award.
