In their discussion of “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Jan Haaken and Cynthia Coleman take up the character of the Osage woman Mollie Burkhart at the center of the story. How much does the film conform to standard tropes in depicting Mollie as a woman, abused wife, and indigenous person, and how much does the story depart from those common clichés? Coleman is Professor Emerita of Communications at Portland State University and an enrolled member of the Osage (Wahzhazhe) Nation.
