Watch the trailer below:
Kurzel’s film shatters the mythology of the notorious icon to reveal the essence behind the life of Ned Kelly and in doing so will take audiences on a mesmerizing journey into the ashes of this brutal period in history.
Spanning the younger years of Kelly’s life and the events leading up to his death, the film explores the motivations for the demise of this legendary figure. 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 a son.
The film is produced by Hal Vogel (Endgame) and Liz Watts (The King), with Paul Ranford (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Justin Kurzel. It has been adapted from Peter Carey’s Booker Prize‐winning novel by previous Kurzel collaborator Shaun Grant (Snowtown) and co-financed by Film4.
