Last Cab to Darwin


It's never too late to start living.

In LAST CAB TO DARWIN, Jeremy Sims (Beneath Hill 60) directs Australian acting legends, Michael Caton and Jacki Weaver against the backdrop of the stunning Australian outback. Caton gives the performance of a lifetime as Rex, a Broken Hill cab driver who, when told he doesn’t have long to live, sets out on an epic journey to Darwin in a bid to die on his own terms. Filled with hope, humour and heart, LAST CAB TO DARWIN reminds us all that it’s never too late to start living.
