Last Stop Larrimah is a stranger-than-fiction true-crime story.

Nestled deep in the Australian Outback is the remote town of Larrimah and its eleven eccentric residents. When Paddy Moriarty and his dog, Kellie, left the local pub and vanished in December of 2017, a long history of infighting is unveiled, as the remaining residents become suspects in an unfolding investigation that leads to Paddy being declared dead.

The documentary, told in five chapters, shines a light on Larrimah’s quirky history and how the town’s once close-knit and jubilant residents brought about their own fate.

Larrimah residents participating in the film include: Barry Sharpe, the owner of the Larrimah Hotel & Pub and a beefy pet crocodile; Fran Hodgetts, a quirky outcast and shop owner specializing in exotic meat pies; Karl and Bobbie Roth, the husband and wife who ran the local fire and rescue team and bitter rivals of Barry; Billy Hodgetts, Fran’s ex-husband, all skin, bones, and tattoos with stories to tell; Cookie Burke, a mellow old fellow who loves juicy gossip; Karen and Mark Rayner, the two newest and youngest residents of Larrimah; Richard Simpson, the bartender who works for Barry; and Lenny Hodson, Larrimah’s oldest resident at 81-years-old.

Having had its world premiere at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival, Last Stop Larrimah premieres in the US on Sunday, October 8, at 9 PM ET/PT on HBO, with streaming available on Max.

The documentary, an HBO Documentary Film, is directed and executive produced by Thomas Tancred; produced by Sean Bradley and Rebecca Saunders; executive produced by Mark Duplass, Mel Eslyn, Jay Duplass, and Stephen Cash; and co-produced by Will Dowsett and Shane Reid. Jesse Gohier-Fleet is director of photography, and Nicholas Alden is lead editor. For HBO the executive producers are Nancy Abraham, Lisa Heller, and Tina Nguyen.
