Hero to some, outlaw to others, Ned Kelly throws a long shadow over a specific period of Australian history. Spanning the younger years of Ned’s life to the time leading up to his death, the film explores the story behind this legendary historical figure. Nurtured by the notorious bushranger Harry Power and fuelled by the unfair arrest of his mother, Ned 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.
Starring George MacKay, Essie Davis, Nicholas Hoult, Orlando Schwerdt, Thomasin McKenzie, Sean Keenan, Charlie Hunnam and Russell Crowe, the film is released in the UK on February 28, with a U.S. date to be announced.
