SCFS – Last Cab to Darwin

September 12, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - September 13, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

Australia 2015, 123 min, comedy/drama.
Director: Jeremy Sims.

Rex, a charming cab driver with terminal cancer, decides to make a solo 3000 km journey to Darwin through the Australian outback. The painful reality of facing certain death brings anger, withdrawal, and isolation, but Rex soon discovers that sharing all of that is what it means to be alive.

Last Cab to Darwin is a touching and captivating story of racism, euthanasia, and romance that will bring both joy and tears to its audience.

“Sims imbues his characters with rich thought and heart. Cinematographer Steve Arnold captures the natural beauty of remote Australia in dozens of locations bathed in mesmerizing sunsets. Meanwhile, the ever-present guitar score by Ed Kuepper is poignant, moving, and overflowing with the desolate hope that pushes Rex forward.ā€ ā€” Dan Gvozden, The Village Voice
