Theatrical report

Last ride is a lovely Australian film about the joys of being a single parent on the run from a violent crime. The mystery is slowly developed from a father and son on the road to a man with no plan and a kid to look after. It sucks to be either of them and you get the most amazing landscape as a backdrop. Gotta love the outback. This is an excellent drama that documents life on Struggle Street.

The Australia, crime, drama movie Last ride is directed by Glendyn Ivin and stars Hugo Weaving, Tom Russell, John Brumpton.
