The screenplay (based on Robert Drewe's novel 'Our Sunshine') of the movie directed by Gregor Jordan. An Australian legend, Ned Kelly has captured our imaginations for over 100 years. Cast variously as a hero, villain, revolutionary, gentleman and murderous thug, he and his gang cut a trail through the outback with the police in hot pursuit. Ned was imprisoned at the age of 16 on a trumped up charge of horse stealing. On his release Ned vows to go 'straight'. But the system is prejudiced against the first-generation Irish immigrants and after being wrongfully charged with attempted murder while trying to defend his sister, Ned goes on the run with his younger brother Dan and two friends Steve Hart and Joe Byrne. While a folk hero to the masses, to the establishment he's the most wanted man in Australia. The final showdown at the Inn at Glenrowan will cement Ned's status as the legendary revolutionary hero of the Australian underclass forever.
