We are delighted to be joined by the star of this film, as well as recent Oscar-winner 1917, George MacKay for a special live introduction in Screen One.
“Brutal portrait of the outback outlaw.”
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“True History of the Kelly Gang drips with dark irony, crackles with punky nervous energy, and is anchored by a blistering, career-best performance from 1917’s George Mackay.”
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
Based on Peter Carey’s Booker Prize winning novel, Justin Kurzel’s True History Of The Kelly Gang shatters the mythology surrounding Ned Kelly to reveal the essence behind the life of the notorious icon. Hero to some, outlaw to others, Kelly (played by George MacKay) throws a long shadow over a specific period of Australian history. Spanning his life from his younger years to the time leading up to his death, the film explores the story behind 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 in the Kelly Gang, and at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and son.
