124 mins. UK/Australia 2019. Dir: Justin Kurzel

FILM LOVERS’ FRIDAY

Justin Kurzel detonates a punk power-chord of defiance and anarchy with this brutally violent and unflinchingly stark tale that unfolds in a scorched, alien-looking landscape. The film is adapted from Peter Carey’s Booker prize-winning novel, and it is a further variation on the legend of Ned Kelly, a bush-ranger at war with the English colonial oppressor. Youth and tragedy collide in the Kelly Gang,. At the heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and a son.

A once off opportunity to see this film at Swanpool Cinema before it goes to a screening service.

Complimentary light supper follows the screening.
