Revelation Perth International Film Festival kicks off its eighteenth edition tonight at the Luna Cinema in Leederville, Perth, Western Australia with the Australian road movie Last Cab To Darwin.
Film Director Jeremy Sims, along with stars Michael Caton, Nigali Lawford and Mark Coles Smith will be in attendance. Last Cab To Darwin World Premiered last month at the 2015 Sydney Film Festival.
In Last Cab to Darwin, 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.
