Guy Pearce plays a man who has lost nearly everything in The Rover, a post-apocalyptic Western set in the Australian Outback in the near future.
When a gang of reckless, murdering marauders takes his car (a beat-up 2006 Holden Commodore, if you're keeping score), he'll stop at nothing to get it back. Along the way, he encounters a half-wit Robert Pattinson, looking nothing like the dreamy vampire he played in the Twilight movies. Together, they track the thieves across the continent to ask them to politely return the vehicle. Or not. In any case, Philip Martin takes a look at the movie in this week's MovieStyle.
And speaking of your gangs, with Jersey Boys, Clinton Eastwood has made a movie about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the mobbed up vocal group who produced hit-after-hit in the ’60s and ’70s. In Think Like a Man Too, the couples from the surprise 2012 hit based on Steve Harvey's self-help book do it again, in Las Vegas. And Ida, Pawel Pawlikowski’s award-winning black and white film about a young novitiate in 1962 Poland also opens — Karen Martin thinks its one of this year's best, so far.
And there's more. See this week's MovieStyle for details.
