  • Becomes too melodramatic and bleakly obvious. Weaving, though, as always, is never less than magnetic. show more

  • A tour-de-force turn from the persistently terrific Hugo Weaving lights a fuse under Last Ride, a spare and wrenching road movie delving into the complexities of a fraught father-son relationship. show more

  • The film is astonishing in its visual beauty; cinematographer Greig Fraser ("Snow White and the Huntsman") finds nobility in this arduous journey. show more

    Tragic story but fantastic movie. I knew nothing of the life of Hank Williams and had no idea he died so young. Very touching film with excellent acting. Henry Thomas\'s likeness to Hank Williams is uncanny, although he is much better looking than Hank Williams. Very moving film; I highly recommend even if you aren\'t a Hank Williams fan. He never sings a single song in the film, he just talks and drinks his way through, ********* a riveting ride, to say the least.
