Weaving has a brilliant instinct for playing damaged men, as he did in Little Fish. Kev is a heartbreaking character, a hard-shelled survivor. Weaving captures all his brittleness, the years of damage.

The landscape plays a big part in this journey into darkness, this land of ours which draws the marginalised into its own sense of alienation. A tough film but a very, very good one.

Don't miss Last Ride. It will take you places we haven't been for some time in Australian cinema.

The first half hour or so stumbles; the movie's so determined to avoid melodrama that it's too flat and too familiar. Once father and son are out in the remote countryside, though, something clicks.

Though the script doesn't always reach its potential, visually this is a stunning film that challenges its audience.

Weaving draws on his vast experience to show the complexities of his rugged and violent character, while also offering glimpses of the man's softer side and his genuine affection for his growing son.
