One of our favorite films of the summer is David Michod’s “The Rover” starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. It’s a completely stark and austere tale of a man hell bent on retrieving what is his, by any means necessary. But remember, it’s not quite post-apocalyptic. “It’s post-catastrophic economic collapse!” Michod stressed in a recent Reddit AMA. Got that?

Unlikely to win an endorsement from the Australian Tourism Board, “The Rover” presents an unrelentingly bleak view of the land Down Under in the near future. There's nary a koala bear in sight and no jocular offers to throw another shrimp on the barbie in writer-director David Michôd's downbeat road movie, set in the hot and dusty Outback 10 years after an undefined collapse.

Having proven, with the terrific “Animal Kingdom,” that he could take a potentially small story of desperate men and blow it up into something much grander, David Michod attempts something like the opposite with “The Rover,” taking the epic, sweeping backdrop of a post-apocalyptic, dusty Australian desert, and turning in a tiny two-hander road movie, that is as spartan as its predecessor was operatic. It’s a mark of just what a talent the director is, then, that he can, on the evidence of this morning’s Cannes press screening, turn in such distinctive and compelling work in either register.

The Rover stars Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce are joined by director David Michôd in a new featurette, which takes fans behind-the-scenes of this upcoming drama. David Michôd reveals that he wrote the character of Eric specifically for Guy Pearce, who is relentlessly angry at how the world has evolved after the collapse of modern society 10 years prior. Robert Pattinson plays Rey, who is forced by Eric to help track down his former gang, with the actor revealing that his character has never had to think for himself before meeting Eric.
