‘I’ve been a wild rover for many a year, And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer….’ yes, indeedy. This is finally the day the Rover has been released. It’s the movie with the best soundtrack in an age in my narrow minded opinion! Otherwise there’s a animated art house adventure, a documentary about a dinosaur and a bunch of action heroes blowing stuff up! Something for everyone…

The Rover – 10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves’ brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.
