THE ROVER

Director: DAVID MICHOD

102 minutes, Australia, 2014, Colour, D-Cinema


This film closes on Thursday, August 28th.

Following his award-winning debut feature, Animal Kingdom, director David Michôd returns with this warped, daring and vividly realised thriller. It is set 10 years on from a severe economic collapse from which the western world is never going to recover, and in the desolate Australian outback, where lawlessness reigns and life is cheap. Eric is a lone drifter, and his car is his only possession. When a desperate gang steals it, Eric is relentless in his mission to track them down and make them pay for their crime. He comes across the injured Rey, a simple-minded kid who has been left for dead by the car thieves. The pair form an unlikely and uneasy alliance.

Featuring excellent, powerful performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, The Rover is a savagely brutal, brilliantly twisted dystopian nightmare presenting an easily imaginable near future which resonates with the here and now.
