LAST RIDE Movie Trailer & Pictures with Hugo Weaving
Check out the trailer for LAST RIDE starring Hugo Weaving, Tom Russell, Anita Hegh, John Brumpton, and directed by Glendyn Ivin.
Last Ride is part of the Discovery lineup at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
Last Ride Synopsis: Kev (Hugo Weaving) and his ten-year-old son, Chook (Tom Russell), are on the run, and at first we don’t know why – and neither does Chook. Travelling further and further into the Australian outback, they dump their car and buy tickets for the bus, and then ditch the bus and start hitchhiking. The two clearly have an unusual but still oddly functional relationship, despite Kev’s periodic absences in the past to do jail time.
One night after bedding Chook down, Kev sets out in search of food but is drawn to the local pub. A news story on television reveals that Max (John Brumpton), a close friend, has been murdered and police are on the hunt. Trying to stay one step ahead of the law, Kev keeps the pair moving, finally confessing to Chook that Max is dead. Confused and tired, Chook attacks his father, and this burst of anger catapults the pair into a series of dramatic confrontations, which resolve in surprising and gratifying ways.
