Rex (Michael Caton) is a cab driver from Broken Hill. On the surface he appears as a simple man whose days are spent driving miners to the airport, whose evenings are spent drinking a beer with a handful of old mates and whose mornings pass by as he has tea with his neighbour Polly (Ningali Lawford). But underneath the apparent simplicity of his daily life Rex is in poor health. Now, facing bad news he understands that he wants to control his final moments, meanwhile in Darwin Dr Farmer (Jacki Weaver) may have the perfect solution. Rex just needs to drive there.

A uniquely Australian road movie, director Jeremy Sims delivers what will undoubtedly become a classic, based on a script by Reg Cribb and Jeremy Sims  - the film is the product of a Perth dream team whose resumes include 2006’s Last Train To Freo.  

Tightly directed, the well-paced script negotiates the potentially controversial material with ease and the cast – some of the country’s best actors –  offer powerful performances. Add a score by Ed Kuepper and it’s clear that Last Cab To Darwin delivers on all levels.
