Last Ride

last-ride

When his father bundles him into the car in the middle of the night, ten-year-old Chook knows something is wrong.

As the two escape into the desert facing an unknown future, their troubled relationship and the need to survive sees them battling the elements, and each other.

Both beautiful and harsh, Last Ride is a journey of heartbreak and hope. Hugo Weaving delivers a career-defining performance alongside ten-year-old newcomer Tom Russell. As Kev and Chook they reveal a complex and moving relationship in which friendship, betrayal, loyalty and love are portrayed with rawness and a poetic urgency.

Last Ride is the highly anticipated debut feature film from director Glendyn Ivin, winner of the Palme d’Or for short film (Cracker Bag) at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival
