Lily Gladstone at Cannes: Reactions to premiere of ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’
Lily Gladstone, a Montana actress, worked her way from home-state theater and independent films to a standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival.
On Saturday, Martin Scorsese’s new film, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” finally had its world premiere at months of anticipation, earning nine minutes of applause, according to media outlets.
She performs with luminaries like Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tantoo Cardinal, to name a few among a typically star-studded cast that the famed director can attract.
Our gorgeous state was only in some of these films or series for a few minutes, but these are IMDb’s most highly rated movies and shows that were at least partially fimed in Montana.
First, some background: Gladstone (Blackfeet/Nez Perce) grew up in Browning and East Glacier, then moved to Seattle with her family when she was 11. She returned to her home state and earned her BFA in acting at the University of Montana and toured with the Montana Repertory Theatre in “The Miracle Worker.” After graduation, she acted in plays and independent films, including “Winter in the Blood,” a 2013 adaptation of the novel by James Welch (Blackfeet/Gros Ventre) by directors Alex and Andrew Smith.
