“Standing Ovation for Lily Gladstone at Cannes: A Triumph for Leonardo DiCaprio’s Protege”

Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated film, Killers of the Flower Moon, received a warm reception at the Cannes LHP on Saturday night (American time). The movie, which runs for 3 hours and 26 minutes, features an all-star cast with Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lily Gladstone. The story delves into an obscure and unsettling period of American history. Despite the movie’s length, the audience was captivated and gave it a standing ovation that lasted for nine minutes – even longer than the applause for the blockbuster hit Titanic.

It seems like Cannes has a soft spot for Leonardo DiCaprio – who made his last appearance in the festival with “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” – and Martin Scorsese, who made his comeback after more than three decades since “After Hours” in 1985. This is great news for Apple Original Films, as they have invested over $200 million in the director to bring his unique vision to life. Fans of Scorsese’s classic crime films set in New York City may be in for a surprise, as “Killers of the Flower Moon” takes place in northeast Oklahoma, where members of the Osage State are being murdered for sinister reasons.

Scorsese, DiCaprio, De Niro, and Jesse Plemons braved the rain and gloomy weather to grace the red carpet before the premiere. The Aviator’s Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett warmly welcomed Scorsese to cheer him on. The audience cheered loudly for Gladstone, who played the role of an Osage woman who was betrayed by her husband. She was overwhelmed with emotions and tears flowed down her cheeks as the crowd inside the Palais continued to applaud. As the applause persisted even after the movie ended, Scorsese took the microphone and addressed the audience.

The filmmaker expressed his gratitude to the Osages for their contribution in creating a monumental picture. He reminisced about his old friends, including Bob, Leo, Jesse, and Lily, with whom he filmed the movie in Oklahoma. Although it took some time to appear, Apple did an excellent job. The lush greenery of the location came as a surprise to the New Yorker, making it an unforgettable experience. The standing ovation would have continued if Scorsese had not been called on stage, and he kept thanking everyone while the crowd cheered. Despite his excitement, he did not want the camera to focus on him for too long, mindful of the scrutiny that comes with being an A-class attendee at Cannes. The Osage actors around him were emotional, wiping tears from their eyes.

The screening of Killers of the Flower Moon at Palais had a delayed start, but the audience was not bothered by it. The film is one of the most highly anticipated and expensive films showcased at the festival, attracting Hollywood’s brightest talents to honor the art of filmmaking. Among the movie stars, notable tycoons like Apple’s CEO Tim Cook also graced Cannes to support the company’s breakthrough in filmmaking. The audience burst into applause when Apple’s banner appeared on the screen after the film started, in contrast to the reaction at a media screening.

The humorous antics of De Niro and DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s latest film, based on David Grann’s book Killers of the Flower Moon, were warmly received by audiences. The movie is set in 1920s Oklahoma and follows the FBI’s investigation into a series of murders in Osage Country. Alongside De Niro and DiCaprio, Brendan Fraser and John Lithgow deliver strong supporting performances, and even Scorsese himself makes a cameo appearance. Although the movie was not shown at Cannes, it is set for release in theaters on October 20th, followed by a streaming debut on Apple’s platform at an unspecified later date. While Scorsese has previously won awards at Cannes, Killers of the Flower Moon will not be eligible for the festival’s prestigious Palme d’Or.
