Picturehouse to host live YouTube Q&A for True History of The Kelly Gang

The True History of the Kelly Gang

TO celebrate the digital release of True History of The Kelly Gang today (June 22, 2020), Picturehouse Entertainment have announced a live YouTube Q&A with director Justin Kurzel and actors George MacKay, Essie Davis and Earl Cave on Sunday, June 28 at 8pm.

The Q&A will be available to stream live via the Picturehouse Entertainment YouTube Channel and questions can be submitted via Twitter at #KellyGangFilm.

Justin Kurzel’s electrifying film, True History of The Kelly Gang is available today (Monday, June 22) on Digital/EST and is released on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital/VOD on July 6, 2020.

From visionary director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth) and based on the Booker Prize-winning novel by Peter Carey, True History of The Kelly Gang is a bold and visceral take on the story of Ned Kelly, starring George MacKay (1917, Pride), Nicholas Hoult (Tolkien, The Favourite), Essie Davis (The Babadook, Babyteeth), Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur, The Gentlemen), Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit, Leave No Trace) and Russell Crowe (A Beautiful Mind, Master & Commander: The Far Side Of The World).

Hero to some, outlaw to others, Ned Kelly (MacKay) throws a long shadow over Australian history. Spanning his life from his younger years to the time leading up to his death, the film follows the story of 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 with violent and explosive consequences but at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful bond between a mother and son.
