Or like the oil that bubbles up from the ground and sets the insidious chain of homicides in motion. That theatrical positioning seems ideal for a powerful drama that should figure notably among the year-end prestige crop. Ernest makes no secret of his indolent nature, his love of money and whiskey, and while she calls him a coyote, Mollie is charmed by him. That leaves only Mollie and another sister, Rita (Janae Collins), standing between them and the family’s oil wealth. And Jack White makes a brief appearance as an actor in a true-crime radio show about the murders, complete with studio orchestra and foley artists.
