In Last Cab to Darwin, a taxi driver is told he doesn’t have long to live. He sets out on a long journey to Darwin expecting to live what is left for him in this world on his own terms.

Last Cab to Darwin is a road movie offering a gentle ride with outback scenery with a variety of colorful characters meeting our cabdriver along the way on his quest to the possible choice to die with dignity. The cast performances, especially Michael Caton in the lead, are moving and the story provides for notable supporting roles by native actors, Mark Coles Smith and Ningali Lawford.

The film was a popular hit at home in Australia.

Last Cab to Darwin is out today in Montreal. All right, Mate?
