Picturehouse Entertainment has announced that director Justin Kurzel’s new biographical western, TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG, the explosive new adaptation of Peter Carey’s Booker Prize‐winning novel, will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 28 February 2020.
This bold and visceral take on the story of Ned Kelly stars George MacKay, Nicholas Hoult, Orlando Schwerdt, Essie Davis, Charlie Hunnam, Sean Keenan, Thomasin McKenzie, and Russell Crowe.
Kurzel’s film shatters the mythology of the notorious icon to reveal the essence behind the life of Ned Kelly and in doing so will take audiences on a mesmerizing journey into the ashes of this brutal period in history. Spanning the younger years of Kelly’s life and the events leading up to his death, the film explores the motivations for the demise of this legendary figure. Youth and tragedy collide in the Kelly Gang, and at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and a son.
