The Rover

by David Michod
An unflinching and stripped take on the post-apocalypse...

The Rover opens with Guy Pearce's character enjoying a drink at a remote bar in the desert. Just outside, three men steal his vehicle, the titular Rover. The rest of the movie follows Pearce and his efforts to try and reclaim his car. Pearce, with the aid of Pattinson, pursues the men with a curious determination. In a bleak, post-apocalyptic world where society has crumbled and humans have turned against each other, of what importance is Pearce's rover? The answer to that question drives the film and makes for a sobering and surprisingly touching final shot. With fine performances by both Pearce and Pattinson and a unique and restrained take on the post-apocalyptic genre, The Rover is an impactful film devoted to realism and filled with thematic richness.
