Full film details

As a boy in the 1800s, Ned Kelly (Orlando Schwerdt) lives in the Australian outback, raised by his resilient mother, Ellen Kelly (Essie Davis), and his sickly father. When Ned’s dad passes away, self-loathing outlaw Harry Power (Russell Crowe) becomes his new father figure and it’s not long before Harry’s lack of care for the community around him makes an impression on young Ned.

Years later, an older Ned (George McKay) is entirely under the influence of Harry and every unlawful crime he commits pushes Ned further and further down a dark path. Yet many of his fellow Australian settlers are praising him for his offenses.

To the authorities, Ned is a cold-hearted murderer, but those who know the truth regard him as a hero. It’s not long before Ned recruits a gang to help him orchestrate a campaign of rebellion that will grip the entire nation.

True History of the Kelly Gang tells the story of Ned Kelly like you’ve never seen it before. The film is helmed by Australian director, Justin Kurzel (Macbeth), and features an incredible line-up of award-winning and international stars including BAFTA award winner George MacKay (1917), Essie Davis (Assassin’s Creed), Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Boy Erased, Les Miserables, The Nice Guys), Nicholas Hoult (Tolkien, The Favourite, The Current War) and Charlie Hunnam (The Gentlemen).
