LAST CAB TO DARWIN

Director: Jeremy Sims; Australia, 2015, 124 min; PG

“IT’S A JOY TO GO ALONG FOR THE RIDE.” –Reeling Reviews

The subject might be downbeat. Still, grimness doesn’t dominate this gloriously shot road trip, which covers 2,000 kilometers of Australian outback and big swathes of the country’s psychic geography, as well. Darwin is mostly a pictorial mood-setter, with desert sunsets and a career-high performance from The Castle’s Michael Caton.

He plays taxi-driving Reg, who has never left the mining town of Broken Hill, nor has he ever started a family. So there’s no one to consult when his stomach cancer is found too late to save him.

When Reg hears about a doctor up north (Jacki Weaver) who’s fighting for the rights of sick people to die with dignity, he heads for Darwin. Along the way, he hooks up with a handsome young, mixed-race drifter (movie-stealing Mark Coles Smith) who helps Reg navigate the indigenous reaches of central Australia.

At two hours, the movie feels a bit overstuffed with plot contrivances. But the actors never let artifice get in the way of the movie’s deep well of human feeling. That acoustic-guitar score is mighty nice, too. –Georgia Straight

“A WRY FILM THAT REMAINS UPBEAT.” –San Francisco Chronicle
