“Rings with the outlaw’s very spirit: it’s a cinematic rebel yell all too ready to face a hail of bullets under the armour of its own nutty bravura confidence.”~FILMINK

Aroview: Justin Kurzel (SNOWTOWN) directs this adventurous retelling of the Australian story of bushranger and outlaw Ned Kelly, based on Peter Carey's 2001 novel.

A bold vision that favours a hallucinatory, punk rock spirit over historical retelling, with George MacKay (1917) playing Kelly with the rage of a true anti-hero, as he stages his ultimate, doomed revenge against the colonial constabulary. An innovative, postmodern retelling of the outlaw legend.
