Mon 30 March, 2020 @ 8:00 pm£7 – £10
True History of the Kelly Gang (18) – 2019, Australia, 120 mins
Director: Justin Kurzel
TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG shatters the mythology surrounding Ned Kelly to reveal the essence behind the life of the notorious icon. Hero to some, outlaw to others, Kelly (played by George MacKay) throws a long shadow over a specific period of Australian History. Spanning his life from his younger years to the time up to his death, the film explores the story behind this legendary figure. Nurtured by the notorious bushranger Harry Power (Russell Crowe) and fuelled by the unfair arrest of his mother (Essie Davis), Kelly recruits a wild bunch of warriors to plot a campaign of anarchy and rebellion that will grip the entire country. Youth and tragedy collide in the Kelly Gang, and at the beating heart of his tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and son.
TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG is a visceral, blazing and utterly unforgettable telling of the legendary story. Stunningly brought to life by director Justin Kurzel and featuring electric and exhilarating performances from the stellar cast headed by rising star George MacKay presently on screens in the lead role in 1917.
Doors open for all manner of drinks at 7pm. Film at 8pm.
