The Rover, David Michôd's highly anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom is
set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. The rule of the
law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner
Eric (Pearce) as he travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback.
When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind a wounded Rey
(Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go
to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him. Michôd
also wrote the film based on a story he conceived with Joel Edgerton.
