Four years ago director David Michod made a big impact around the world with his picture Animal Kingdom which depicted the world of a Melbourne crime family.
Now he is back with another Australian film, The Rover, which stars Guy Pearce.
Alongside him British heartthrob Robert Pattinson gives a performance which some critics think will redefine his career from the Twilight saga in which he made his name.
