Lily Gladstone Responds to Devery Jacobs' Critique of 'Killers of the Flower Moon'

Lily Gladstone, Golden Globe winner for her role in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” has offered insights into Devery Jacobs’ criticisms of the film’s portrayal of the 1920s Osage murders. Jacobs expressed deep emotions on social media, highlighting the “unrelenting and unnecessarily graphic” scenes that stirred trauma among Native women.

In response, Gladstone defended Jacobs’ right to her opinion, emphasizing the impact of the film’s historical narrative on Native women. Acknowledging the trauma these portrayals evoke, Gladstone emphasized that Jacobs’ reaction is a genuine response to the intense emotions experienced by Native women witnessing their history on screen.

While Gladstone appreciates Jacobs’ perspective, she also noted the importance of Osage reactions, as the film gave a platform for many to share their voices. The Golden Globe winner mentioned that she, too, had to navigate her feelings about the film’s depictions and praised the balanced approach taken by “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

As both actresses share a friendship, Gladstone clarified that she doesn’t want to bring negative attention to Jacobs, respecting her individual reaction to the film. The actress highlighted the significance of humanizing Native stories in the face of historical dehumanization, making the impact more profound when Native women are brought to the forefront of the narrative.

Despite varying opinions, the film received praise for its Indigenous representation, with Gladstone’s performance earning her the historic Golden Globe. As discussions about the film continue, the insights from both Gladstone and Jacobs contribute to a broader conversation about the portrayal of historical events and the importance of diverse perspectives in storytelling.
