In Like Flynn (2019)
In Like Flynn is an Australian biographical movie about the early life of actor Errol Flynn. Based on the story of former Australian war-veteran and actor Errol Flynn, the story follows the early days of his life before reaching fame as a celebrity between the 1940s and the 1950s. Before reaching fame, Flynn was an adventurous Australian bloke who gambled and explored the outback before going off to fight in the Pacific War in the early 1940s. After retrieving a map from a dead gold prospector, Errol Flynn believes it will lead him to gold in Papua New Guinea, and convinces three men to accompany him on a voyage up the east coast of Australia. They leave Sydney on the yacht Sirocco, which Flynn had stolen from Chinese opium smugglers. During their journey, Flynn and his crew encounter a number of challenges, including the Chinese crew attempting to intercept them, desperate to reclaim the yacht and the opium they have hidden on board. A chronicle of Errol Flynn’s pre-Hollywood sea adventures up the east coast of Australia. His crew includes his best friend Rex, a wild, visceral young man, the Dook, a proper young gent from Cambridge, and Charlie, the aging, depressed previous owner of the boat. Flynn and company encounter beautiful virgins, underground boxing clubs, police raids, bar brawls, man-eating sharks, and cannibals while being forced to smuggle opium to survive. They must also battle the raging sea itself.
