Last Ride (2009) Rated NR

A boy travels across Australia with his dad, who is wanted for a violent crime. Based on the novel by Denise Young. Starring Hugo Weaving, Tom Russell, Anita Hegh.

Brilliant acting, gorgeous cinematography, and a compelling story line make this film a must watch. As this father and son share one last ride across Australia, there is so much depth and love flowing from their performances, including exquisitely understated moments between them where no words are spoken. As a viewer, you feel like you are on this journey with them, it is so rich with visual and emotional detail.  I found myself thinking about it long after the movie ended.  This beautiful piece of art is worth a watch.
