SUN­DAY

NED KELLY

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, ONE

A mud­dled take on the life and times of the Aus­tralian bushranger, pan­der­ing to the myth of an Aus­tralian Robin Hood in­stead of chal­leng­ing it. Solidly evokes the at­mos­phere of a colour­ful era in our his­tory, but on shaky ground try­ing to make a saint of some­one who was any­thing but. Heath Ledger’s charis­matic read­ing of Kelly will save the day for most view­ers, who should en­joy the jour­ney in time even if patchy sto­ry­telling rides roughshod over the facts.
