However, the Hollywood production also follows the love story between a white man, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and his Osage wife, played by Lily Gladstone.
Cannes loves Leo DiCaprio even after the 206-minute Martin Scorsese returned to the festival for the first time since 1985.
DiCaprio’s character, pressured by his uncle (Robert De Niro), participates in the murder plot even though he loves his wife and children.

“For the Osage women, the power of the film is that they can see it together and talk about it afterwards, they feel it’s vital to them and they’re very happy that this story has come to light,” she said. his screen partner Gladstone.
