But what’s really set the cat among the pigeons today on social media — not quite up there with The Guardian asking what our lowest point was during the pandemic, in the light of their report that Gwyneth Paltrow succumbed to both bread and alcohol, but close — is the New York Post apparently unable to identify Leonardo DiCaprio.
Even I knew it was him and I regularly call my son by the cat’s name.
DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone star in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Apple Original Film. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, Killers Of The Flower Moon depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror. DiCaprio plays Ernest Burkhart, and Gladstone appears as Mollie Burkhart, an Osage woman who falls in love with Ernest. Early in their relationship, Mollie invites him in for a meal and they form a bond.
A native of Montana, Lily Gladstone is of Blackfeet and Nez Perce descent. She made her film debut in Alex and Andrew Smith’s Winter in the Blood, and has recently appeared on Showtime’s Billions, as well as Kelly Reichert’s features Certain Women and First Cow.
The film is based on David Grann’s highly praised best-seller and also stars Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion, William Belleau, Jason Isbell, Louis Cancelmi, Scott Shepherd and Sturgill Simpson.
