Synopsis

Biopic of the notorious Australian outllaw and folk hero, played by Heath Ledger. From a family of Irish immigrants in the Victoria area of Australia, Kelly has long been the target of a prejudiced police force. Sentenced to three years in prison for theft, Kelly finds a job tending horses on a ranch when he is released. But when Kelly falls foul of crooked policeman Fitzpatrick (Kiri Paramore), he finds himself on the run after being accused of a crime he didn't commit. Together with his brothers, Kelly forms a bank-robbing gang and is pursued by bounty hunter Francis Hare (Geoffrey Rush), leading to a final stand where Kelly armours himself with steel plate, determined to go down in a blaze of glory. Orlando Bloom also stars.
