Rex is a loner, and when he's told he doesn't have long to live, he embarks on an epic drive through the Australian outback from Broken Hill to Darwin to die on his own terms; but his journey reveals to him that before you can end your life, you have to live it, and to live it, you've got to share it.Written by

The Northern Territory passed it's euthanasia laws in 1995. One year later the NT Parliament tried to repeal the bill, but it was defeated. Eventually the bill was over written by The Euthanasia Act 1997, a Federal Government bill. See more »
Around the 45th min in the bar fridge, you can see the Swedish cider Kopparberg. The film is set in 2005 but Kopparberg didn't arrive in Australian until around 2010. See more »
I thought this one of the best movies I have seen in a long, long time and up there with the Castle and the Dish. I thought the acting throughout good and especially Michael Caton and the actor who played Tilley who I found to be a lovable rogue. The story line was sad, but was very thought provoking when thinking about and discussion euthanasia. All in all I really enjoyed the story and especially loved seeing the outback of Australia. I cried a lot but I also laughed a lot and would recommend this movie to any age (except children of course) and hope that many people go to see it. I also hope that it is up there when the movie award come out.
