    Synopsis


    Ned Kelly
    Gregor Jordan's version of the Australian legend Ned Kelly stars Heath Ledger as the title outlaw. Sixteen-year-old Irish immigrant Ned is sentenced to three years in prison for stealing a horse. After his release he finds work tending to horses owned by Richard Cook (Nicholas Bell), whose wife (Naomi Watts) grows interested in Ned. Fitzpatrick (Kiri Paramore) is a police officer with a yen for Ned's sister, Kate (Kerry Condon). When she rejects him, Fitzpatrick steals the family's animals. The brothers are falsely accused of a crime and go into hiding, leading to the assault and arrest of their beloved mother. Francis Hare (Geoffrey Rush) is eventually brought on to stop the gang, which becomes famous after a string of bank robberies. The film also features Orlando Bloom (of Lord of the Rings fame) and Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under). The most recent version of this oft-filmed tale featured Mick Jagger as the infamous Kelly in 1970. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      This is a great true story western, my wife and I loved it! This film based on the real Kelly gang of Australia, shows how some outlaws are made. Where as some like Billy the Kid, were outlaws by choice, Ned Kelly was forced to be one after the local cops wrongfully imprison his mother and friends, and basically put out a bounty for his and his gangs heads. Just because they didn't like him! Heath Ledger is fantastic in this film. This is a very powerful movie, I highly recommend it! Also, some other good true story westerns are Young Guns, Tombstone, Wyatt Earp, and The Assassination of Jesse James.
