There is no bet­ter rea­son to go and get a life than learn­ing you are about to die. That is the take­away from a ten­der tale of a bush taxi driver fac­ing his demise. Michael Ca­ton de­liv­ers a flaw­less por­trayal of a Bro­ken Hill cab­bie whose los­ing bat­tle with can­cer sends him on a one-way trip to Dar­win where he hopes to get ac­cess to a med­i­cally su­per­vised eu­thana­sia ma­chine. It’s a gen­uinely af­fect­ing tale.
