In a world ten years following the collapse of society, the rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Hardened loner Eric travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind a wounded Rey in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one possession that still matters to him

Mad Max Meets The Road


Looking for something different to watch that is not the latest, mass-produced, run-of-the-mill product of our Hollywood Film Factory?  A film that is off-center, dark, disturbing, thoughtful, well-acted, and futuristic? A film whose script, at times, is reminiscent of a Seth MacFarlane Family Guy TV episode?

Look no further. The Rover is directed by Australia's David Michôd, whose first film, Animal Kingdom, won 39 international awards in 2011.  

The Rover stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. It's a little like Mad Max meets The Road. The setting is recent future Australia, 10 years after some sort of apocalyptic event. Pearce is a loner who has his car stolen by three desperate armed men who just committed a violent robbery and are running from what appears to be the local martial law. They have just left a 4th gang member, Pattinson, for dead, at the scene of the heist. The two stars join forces and pursue the 3 villains.

Pearce's character has so much baggage that it would make even Paris Hilton blush. The interesting thing about this film is that it takes its time to unpack all that baggage. Pattinson appears to be valiantly trying to distance himself from his past pretty-boy parts (as in the Twilight Saga). This performance showcases a dramatic range that will shock his fans and critics.
