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
