Sims probably uses a setting-sun metaphor more than necessary, but otherwise his decisions are immaculate and his film should hold audiences in thrall.
Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail, 2016-07-08
Great performances ... elevate the film from merely likable to poignantly satisfying.
Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, 2016-07-07
Takes a tough subject and amiably rides it out into the Outback sunset. It's a wry film that remains upbeat without betraying its rough-around-the-edges cast of characters.
David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, 2016-07-07
"Last Cab to Darwin" provides an emotionally textured look at one older gent's decision to take his waning life into his own resolute hands.
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2016-06-16
Smartly directed by Jeremy Sims, this sweet-hearted film mostly manages to avoid triteness even as it casually packs an emotional punch.
Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, 2016-06-09
A sentimental road drama that reflects the real-world effects of cancer: pain, anger, withdrawal, and isolation.
Dan Gvozden, Village Voice, 2016-06-08
The film shows little trace of its theatrical origins, not least because it consists of one ravishing shot of the blood-orange outback after another, and Sims wrings gentle pleasures from this most unlikely of subjects.
Harry Windsor, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-06-09
It's not so much the destination but the physical and emotional journey embarked on in this thoughtful, culturally authentic road trip.
Eddie Cockrell, Variety, 2015-06-07
