Buccaneer, smuggler, gambler, street fighter, gold prospector and one of the most charismatic movie stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Errol Flynn’s life, before he found fame as an actor, was not for the faint-hearted!

In Like Flynn is a colourful celebration of Flynn’s early years, is the story of a man whose real-life adventures eclipsed those that he portrayed on-screen

In 1930, in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, whilst serving as a guide for a Hollywood producer, a young Flynn discovers a trail that will lead to a fortune in gold.  Back on the streets of Depression-era Sydney, Flynn rounds up a ragtag crew including Rex, a Canadian ex-bootlegger, Dook, an English gentleman handy with a pistol and Charlie, a grizzled old salt.

After stealing the Sirocco, a yacht belonging to Chinese Opium smugglers, Flynn and crew set sail.  They quickly learn just how treacherous a voyage up the Australian east coast can be, running afoul of drunken cowboys, corrupt cops and local thugs before being intercepted by Chinese pirates, who are hell bent on retrieving the Sirocco and the several pounds of opium stashed in its hold.

As the motley crew make a final dash for New Guinea, Flynn is forced to learn what it means to be a real captain, and a master of his own destiny. In Like Flynnis a mythical and satirical coming-of-age story about four men on a journey to find hope, adventure and fortune in an age when the world was spiraling into despair.

Starring Thomas Cocquerel as Flynn, with Corey Large, William Mosely, Isabel Lucas, David Wenham, Dan Fogler and Clive Standen In Like Flynnwill release through Umbrella Entertainment in cinemas across Australia from 11 October.
