The Film

Australia’s Robin Hood or a murderous thug? The real story of Australia's infamous outlaw hero, brought to life with dramatic reconstructions and the descendants of those he killed.

When Ned Kelly burst out of a country pub in the Australian town of Glenrowan in 1880 clad in a suit of iron, he was set not only to take on a rogue police force, but to become his nation’s very own knight in shining armour.

For most Australians Ned Kelly is a revolutionary who fought to tear his country from the shackles of Mother England. But descendants of his Gang, the policemen he gunned down and the townsfolk he held hostage tell a different story. Ned may be less the rebel hero and more the violent yob.
