The film depicts Kelly's hanging as being performed by pushing him off a catwalk. In real life, hangings in Kelly's time were performed by having the prisoner stand on a trapdoor, which would then be opened by a release leaver, sending the prisoner falling until they reached the end of the rope.

Carey is known for their quirkiness. But I have still generally liked them. Bliss was a hoot, and Oscar and Lucinda 'hard work' but OK. I have not read the Ned Kelly book, but would think it's also 'off the wall'. Unfortunately I do not think that this approach works for historical novels about iconic national 'heroes', except to puncture popular viewpoints, which with Ned in a ballgown I guess this is intended to do. Certainly Ned the political Cass warrior, and especially his Irish mother's red-hot hatred of all things British, comes through line an express train.
