Errol Flynn (1909-1959) was the son of a highly respected Australian scientist, and was given the opportunity to have an excellent education. However, his athletic and restless spirit caused him to get into trouble constantly, and he soon bailed out of school to go on and have a series of amazing adventures at least as wild as anything he portrayed as a movie star in the 1930s and 1940s. He was the living embodiment of the swashbucklers he portrayed onscreen. This biographical drama covers Flynn's (Guy Pearce) life from the period in the early twenties when he's homeless and living on the streets in Sydney, through a series of adventures with a pro-Nazi German man in New Guinea, to his return to Sydney and the beginnings of his serious involvement in theater. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
