The screening on 27 February will be followed by a Q&A with lead actor George Mackay.


‘Nothing you are about to see is true’ claims this vivid, full-blooded adaptation of Peter Carey’s  Booker prizewinner. Director Justin Kurzel  (Snowtown, Macbeth) is on top form, matching virtuoso filmmaking with a powerhouse cast in a fiercely imaginative reflection on the life of Ned Kelly. Born into a family of poor Irish immigrants, Ned (George MacKay) grows into an angry young man, constantly at odds with colonial authority. Ruthless bush ranger Harry Power (Russell Crowe) becomes a father figure/mentor as Kelly embraces his destiny as gang leader, folk hero and legend.
