Last Cab To Darwin, directed by Jeremy Sims, (Beneath Hill 60) is a great Australian road movie in the great tradition of quirky Australian road movies. When Broken Hill cab driver Rex learns he’s running out of time, he sets off on an epic 3000km journey through Australia’s bush and desert heartland to Darwin in the far north, in an attempt to die on his own terms, learning on the way that that the only way to truly live, even when you are running out of time, is to be open to people, to share your life.
Michael Caton (The Castle) gives the performance of a lifetime as Rex, the film also features a great cast including the equally legendary Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) and talented young actors Emma Hamilton, Mark Coles Smith, and Ningali Lawford-Wolf.
A uniquely Australian journey, exploring universal themes, Last Cab To Darwin is filled with hope, humour and heart, a timely reminder that it is never too late to really start living.
