From Australia comes the first trailer for Glendyn Ivin’s Last Ride, an indie drama starring Hugo Weaving and Tom Russell. In the film, Weaving plays a father who takes his son on the run after committing a crime and ends up trekking through the desert. This is one of the first times I’ve even heard of this movie, but it looks great and I can’t wait to check it out, if it evers makes its way to America. I’m a huge fan of Hugo Weaving, to the point where I expect to love almost anything he’s in, and this is the first small indie feature he’s been in in a while. Thanks to our friends at Quiet Earth for digging up this trailer. Watch and enjoy!
Last Ride is directed by first-time filmmaker Glendyn Ivin of only a few shorts previously. The screenplay was written by Australian Mac Gudgeon of The Delinquents, Wind, and some TV movies. The film hits theaters in Australia on July 2nd this very summer, but it doesn’t have a US distributor yet. We’re expecting Last Ride to show at some upcoming film festivals fairly soon, so stay tuned for updates then. Some early reviews of the film can be found on Variety and ScreenDaily, with both saying very positive things about it.
