Mini Review - Last Ride

Last Ride (out Jul 2) is a well-paced Australian drama. A rough looking guy (Hugo Weaving) and his 10-year-old son are on the run from the authorities in the remote outback. How did they end up here? The answers are slowly revealed. What "makes the film" is the exploration of the relationship between father and son. The film's website phrases it perfectly - it's both "beautiful and harsh." Grade: A-.
