Plot

Adapted from Peter Carey's award-winning novel, 'True History of the Kelly Gang' is a brutal interpretation of the legend of Ned Kelly, an Australian outlaw who waged war against the English in the 19th century. As a child (played by Orlando Schwerdt, 'Incubator'), Ned's mother, Ellen (Essie Davis, 'The Babadook'), sells him to the notorious bandit Harry Power (Russell Crowe, 'The Loudest Voice'), who teaches Kelly about crime, ruthlessness and paving your own way. As Ned grows into an angry and restless young man hardened by life in jail (henceforth portrayed by George MacKay, '1917'), he forms a gang with his younger brother, Dan (Earl Cave, 'Born to Kill'), and starts terrorising the British authorities, particularly Sergeant O'Neill (Charlie Hunnam, 'Sons of Anarchy'), whom Ned harbours a deep hatred for due to his abuse of Ned's mother, and Constable Fitzpatrick (Nicholas Hoult, 'Tolkien'), whom Ned begins to loathe after Fitzpatrick threatens his sister. The gang begins to refer to themselves as the Sons of Sieve as they go on raids, rob banks and attack the police. As Ned's story grows more bloody and brutal, he begins to wonder whether he will go down in history as a hero or a villain. 'True History of the Kelly Gang' is directed by Justin Kurzel ('Macbeth').
