This is a trailer to a movie we saw last Monday in Melbourne. Last Cab to Darwin is a very well made Australian movie. The cast was excellent and the road pictures were wonderful.

We saw the movie in this cinema:

We had time for coffee and cake before the movie started at 10am or thereabouts.

Apparently this movie was a stage play before it was made into a movie.  I got the following from Wikipedia:

Last Cab to Darwin is a 2003 Australian drama/comedy stage play written by Reg Cribb and based upon the true story of taxi driver Max Bell who was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer in the early 1990s. Wikipedia
