Ned Kelly, the Australian version of Jesse James, came from an incomplete family with Irish roots. At an early age, he gets under the influence of the rough Harry Power (Russel Crowe), and his loathing of authorities slowly grows. In a short time, twenty-something Ned and similar “rebels” start a gang of cattle thieves and bank robbers. Based on Peter Carey's eponymous book, the film depicts the legendary Ned as a “punk” of that era, resisting the British Empire.

Justin Kurzel

The Australian director debuted in 2011 with Snowtown, based on a true case of serial murders, and continued with a raw adaptation of Macbeth (2015) with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, and an adaptation of the Assassin's Creed computer game (2016). His latest film True History of the Kelly Gang premiered at Toronto IFF.
