Not sure if I’m comfortable with Leonardo DiCaprio playing a Native woman https://t.co/XKZToHkgGA

Completely unrecognizable. I can’t tell if Leo is the woman on the left or the one who looks exactly like Leonardo DiCaprio. https://t.co/w54gEHgM4q

According to the official plot summary, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is set “in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts a string of brutal murders of Osage Nation Native Americans, which came to be known as the Reign of Terror. The Osage Nation, who were the richest people per capita in the world, were killed one by one after oil was discovered on their land. As the death toll rose, the newly-created FBI took up the case and unravelled a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.”
