Movie propaganda

At midnight, on a hot summers night, two ex-cons board the last train to Fremantle. Bored, restless and looking for trouble, they start to poke fun at their mind-numbing existence. Until a beautiful young law student, steps into the carriage, alone, and seemingly unaware that the guards are on strike.

But there's more to this young woman than meets the eye. And when two other passengers join the train further down the line, the balance of power takes an unexpected twist.

Told in real time using one claustrophobic location, Last train to Freo is a tense psychological drama about five people who discover they are not the people they think they are. It's a story about class and prejudice, where perception seems more important than truth, and nobody knows who they can trust.

Theatrical report

There are moments in Last train to Freo when the dialogue is too obviously from a play but apart from that this is a pretty good thriller. Locked rooms are good places to set thrillers because there is no way for the characters to get away from what scares them and there is literally no way off this ride. The two thugs appear somewhat stereotypical until you happen to meet one on a train with no guards. Everyone else has lots of "fun" with this great 5-hander.

The Australia, crime movie Last train to Freo is directed by Jeremy Sims and stars Steve Le Marquand, Tom Budge, Gigi Edgley.
