Last Cab to Darwin


November 16 – 2:00 + 7:30 PM

Australia, 2015 – Rated 14A – 123 minutes
Directed by Jeremy Sims
Cast: Michael Caton, Ningali Lawford, Mark Coles Smith

Based on the successful stage play by Reg Cribb, Last Cab to Darwin tells the story of 70-year-old taxi driver Rex (Caton), who is diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer. Rex leaves his loved ones behind, and sets out on a 3,000-mile journey to Darwin in a bid to die on his own terms. Along the way he discovers that before you end your life you’ve got to live it, and to live it you’ve got to learn to share it.

“Great performances … elevate the film from merely likable to poignantly satisfying.”
–  Bruce Demara, Toronto Star

“The film shows little trace of its theatrical origins, not least because it consists of one ravishing shot of the blood-orange outback after another, and Sims wrings gentle pleasures from this most unlikely of subjects.”
– Harry Windsor – Hollywood Reporter
