After the collapse of the Western economy, the dregs of society collect like flies in Australia’s mines. There, a shy, broken man (Robert Pattinson) falls in with a grizzled drifter (Guy Pearce) to pursue a gang of bandits who’ve stolen his car. Look out for murderous carnies, inscrutable aboriginals, and a sun-bleached matriarch who runs an opium den (Gillian Jones). Director David Michôd, whose Aussie-set crime drama Animal Kingdom earned Jacki Weaver an Oscar nom, even cast some nonprofessionals from the outback. ”You can’t meet these people and not think, ‘Oh, there’s got to be a way of getting you in this movie,”’ he says.
