Description: In a dystopian Australian Outback, Guy Pearce plays Eric, a man who has lost his livelihood, his farm and his family to a gang of murderous thugs. The only thing he has left in the world is his car, and when that gets stolen he goes on a violent rampage to get back the vehicle and exact revenge. Along the way, he forcibly enlists the help of Reynolds, played by Robert Pattinson, a member of the gang who got injured and left behind to die. The film is directed by David Michôd, whose previous film Animal Kingdom became an instant crime-thriller classic. While Michôd understands the comparisons between The Rover and Mad Max, the director said to Entertainment Weekly, "With all due respect to that film -- and I stress that -- I think The Rover is going to be way more chillingly authentic and menacing."
