David Michôd’s follow-up to his much acclaimed Animal Kingdom (2010) stars Guy Pearce (Memento) and Robert Pattinson (Twilight series, Cosmopolis) as drifters in a lawless world, ten years after a global economic collapse. Loner Eric (Pearce) is travelling the desolate, hopeless roads and towns of the Australian outback when a gang steals his car and leaves behind wounded Rey (Pattinson), though one of the gang was his brother. Helping Rey to a doctor, the duo then travel in pursuit, with Eric desperate to retrieve his car from Rey’s brother, and to buy a gun to wreak a terrible revenge.

The Rover is one of those compellingly nasty visions of the future that has plenty to say about humanity.” Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
