Hero to some, outlaw to others, Ned Kelly (George MacKay) throws a long shadow over Australian history. Spanning his life from his younger years to the time leading up to his death, the film follows the story of this legendary figure. Nurtured by the notorious bushranger Harry Power (Russell Crowe) and fuelled by the unfair arrest of his mother (Essie Davis), Kelly recruits a wild bunch of warriors to plot a campaign of anarchy and rebellion that will grip the entire country. Youth and tragedy collide with violent and explosive consequences but at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful bond between a mother and son.
From visionary director Justin Kurzel and based on the Booker Prize winning novel by Peter Carey, TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG features an outstanding cast that also includes Charlie Hunnam, Thomasin McKenzie and Nicholas Hoult.
