'Secrets' on Leo Di Caprio's new film

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio's new film tells the macabre story of the "reign of terror" that ended with 24 people dead. "Killers of the Flower Moon," which will premiere in May, is based on the 2017 book written by David Grann, whose events took place in the 1920s. At that time, the FBI began investigating on several murders of Native Americans, members of the Osage tribe, in Oklahoma. These people became rich overnight when their land was discovered to have oil.

They benefited from more than 30 million dollars in revenue each year, which was divided among the members of the tribe equally. If a person outside the tribe wanted to have a share of this wealth, he had to marry a member of the tribe. In this period, William K. Hale, of Texas, induced his nephew, Ernest Burkhart, to marry Osage girl Mollie Kyle (later Mollie Burkhart).

Burkhart, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and his wife Mollie, played by Lily Gladstone, lived in Fairfax with Mollie's mother, Lizzie Q. In May 1921, the decomposed body of one of her daughters, Anna Brown, was discovered in a stream in northern Oklahoma. She was found with a bullet to the head, but since Brown had no enemies, the case remained unsolved.

Dy muaj më vonë, Lizzie ndërroi jetë në rrethana të dyshimta nga një helmim, edhe pse nuk pati prova sërish. Në janar 1923, vdiq edhe nipi i Lizzie, Henry Roan, ndërkohë që Hale, i interpretuar nga Robert De Niro, mashtroi duke përfituar 25 000 dollarë policë sigurimi. Në mars të po atij viti, një tjetër vajzë e Lizzie, Rita Smith, bashkë me burrin e saj, vdiqën pas një shpërthimi që i shkatërroi shtëpinë. Vdekjet vazhduan derisa shifra e tyre shkoi në 24.

Suspicions grew and the investigation led to the name of William K. Hale, as the "mastermind" behind the murders. He was accused of paying others to commit the murders in order to gain money and power for himself. The moment Hale and his nephew were arrested, the killings stopped. We recall that recently DiCaprio, both a producer and known as an activist in support of the environment, reacted by welcoming the government's decision to declare Vjosa a National Park.
