ENDGAME

SYNOPSIS

Ripped from the pages of Peter Carey’s Man Booker prize winning novel TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG, this thrilling, bold adaptation charts the rise and fall of Australia’s original MAD MAX; a coming of age tale about a defiant rebel sworn to wreak vengeance and havoc on the British Empire.


Nurtured by the notorious bushranger Harry Power (RUSSELL CROWE) and fueled by the brutal arrest of his mother, Ned Kelly (GEORGE MCKAY) recruits a rag tag army of crossdressing adolescents and misfits to lead a movement of anarchy and rebellion as he takes on the might of the British Empire and threatens to tear the establishment down.


Loved by the people, feared by his enemies and carved in history Ned Kelly is more than a Robin Hood, he is a f***ing legend.

PRESS & REVIEWS

"Endgame could have become bogged down in "talkiness", but a combination of Milne's intelligent script and some top-notch casting means that the drama is rarely less than absorbing."

- Gerard Gilbert, The Independent 

"...low-key but powerful drama with performances of quiet strength"

- Kathryn Flett, The Observer
