1 Mins read

Lily Gladstone’s response to Devery Jacobs’ criticisms of “Killers of the Flower Moon” resonates with a quiet power, reflecting the emotional complexities surrounding the film’s depiction of the Osage murders. It’s a conversation that transcends critique, touching on the raw wounds of ancestral trauma and the delicate act of bringing such stories to life on screen.

Jacobs’ tweets pierce like arrows, her voice raw with the pain of witnessing her ancestors’ suffering laid bare, “unrelenting and unnecessarily graphic.” The film’s unflinching portrayal of the Osage killings evokes a visceral reaction, a gut punch that Gladstone acknowledges with heartfelt understanding. It’s not simply a movie; it’s a searing reminder of a dark chapter, a collective sigh of anguish echoing through generations.

Gladstone’s own connection to the film adds another layer of depth. As Mollie Burkhart, she embodies the resilience and heartbreak of the Osage people. “Her reaction is hers,” Gladstone says of Jacobs, her words infused with respect for the personal journey each viewer undertakes. They are friends, bound by a shared heritage and the weight of this shared history.

Bringing Back Healed Wounds

Beyond the personal, Gladstone recognizes the broader significance of Jacobs’ words. Her reaction, Gladstone suggests, speaks to “a lot of trauma that particularly Native women feel seeing these things for the first time.” It’s a testament to the film’s raw power, its ability to crack open long-healed wounds and force a reckoning with the past.

But amidst the pain, there’s a flicker of hope. Gladstone highlights the voices that found expression through the film, the Osage people who shared their stories and helped reclaim their narrative. It’s a testament to the healing power of storytelling, the solace of seeing oneself reflected, even in the face of tragedy.

Ultimately, it’s the Osage response that matters most to Gladstone. Their acceptance, their understanding, is the true measure of the film’s success. “Killers of the Flower Moon” may not be an easy watch, but it’s a necessary one. It sparks dialogue, ignites meditation, and forces us to confront the uncomfortable truths of the past. And in that uncomfortable confrontation, perhaps, lies the possibility of healing and understanding.
