Outlaw Ned Kelly (MacKay) lived only 25 years, but it was enough to write his story into Australian legend. The subject of countless books, songs, and other lore, he has become a near-mythical figure in the mould of Jesse James or Robin Hood. Adapting the Booker Prize-winning novel by Peter Carey, Kurzel’s (Snowtown) True History of the Kelly Gang offers a gloriously fictionalised and very violent tale of a true-life renegade.
