Twilight fan marries cardboard cut-out of Robert Pattinson in £2,000 Las Vegas wedding

Lauren Adkins, 25, married the life-size flat pack image of vampire Edward Cullen from the movies – after spotting it in a record shop

Sitting next to her husband in a bar, Lauren orders a gin and tonic.

She nods towards Edward and tells the barman: “He’ll have a beer.”

The barman looks at her as if she has gone completely mad because the “man” next to her is made of cardboard.

Lauren Adkins, 25, is ­married to a life-size cut-out of vampire Edward Cullen from the Twilight movies, played by Robert Pattinson.

She says: “We got hitched in Las Vegas last year and I’m sure we’re happier than most newlyweds.

“People might think I’m crazy but my flat-pack R-Patz is the closest I’ll get to the real thing and he’s the one for me.

“For as long as I can remember I’ve been ­obsessed with romantic fairytale endings.

“When I was a child, I watched the Disney ­versions of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella until the tapes wore out.”

As Lauren grew older she became a fan of teen romantic comedies and expected to meet the man of her dreams on Prom Night.

But it was not to be and at 17 she found herself desperate and dateless.

She started college and moved out of her home but every guy she dated failed to live up to her ideal.

Then came the Twilight books and films – and the vampire of her dreams.

Lauren, from Las Vegas, says: “It was different from any love story I’d seen ­before – after all, the leading character was as likely to suck your blood as open the door for you. I was obsessed.

“Leading man Edward was quiet and ­mysterious, yet superhuman and invincible. And so sexy.

“I tore through the books and I queued outside the cinema when the film was released, desperate for my first glimpse of Edward.

“And when Robert Pattinson appeared on screen at midnight, he was perfect. I knew that very minute I wanted to marry him.”

A few months later in a record shop she saw a 6ft tall Edward in a suit.

“Of course he was made from cardboard, but that didn’t matter to me. Suddenly I was taken over with an urge to have him.

“I grabbed his rigid torso and stuffed him under my arm before marching to the counter and handing over a $20 note.

“Then, cramming him into my car I headed back to my apartment where I ripped off his cellophane and stood him at the foot of my bed. For the rest of the night I couldn’t take my eyes off him.

“Then I started thinking – the guys I’d dated before had all been so hopeless, I might as well have been with a cardboard cut-out. So where was the shame in taking him out with me?”

In the following months, besotted Lauren took Edward out with her more and more. He became her other half.

She says: “A friend who thought I was going mad said one night: ‘If you love him so much why don’t you marry him?’ Her words rang in my ears. She was right. Why didn’t I?”

Lauren went online to find a chapel where she could pledge her love to Edward Cullen.

Sure enough, the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel on the Vegas strip agreed to carry out the service.

They even offered a choice between a traditional minister and an Elvis impersonator.

Lauren says: “I walked down the aisle in January in the white wedding dress I’ve always dreamt of.

“I held the reception at an art gallery and ordered champagne and a five-tier cake to share with my 50 guests.

“The day cost £2,000 but I didn’t care – I wanted to do it properly.

“We had our honeymoon in LA and I wanted us to climb up to the Hollywood sign together.”

“I had to carry him, and we had to do it at night because he can’t be in the sun.

“But everyone makes sacrifices for the man they love, right?”

Woman Marries Robert Pattinson Cardboard Cut-out

‘Obsessed’ Twihard marries a lifesize stand-in for art…

09:33, Friday, 12 September 2014

Brace yourselves, because we’re pretty sure today’s (and probably the month’s) news headlines just peaked.

A woman has married a life-size cardboard cut-out of Robert Pattinson. And while it’s all in the name of ‘art’ as part of a crowd-funded work looking at ‘the female escapist fantasy’, the dedication to the cause was still pretty phenomenal.

Lauren Adkins, 25, told the Daily Mirror about the way in which her ‘obsession’ with Twilight hearthrob Edward Cullen morphed from Twihard try-hard into a world of matrimonial possibility.

“People might think I’m crazy but my flat-pack R-Patz is the closest I’ll get to the real thing and he’s the one for me,” she said. “A friend who thought I was going mad said one night: ‘if you love him so much why don’t you marry him?’ Her words rang in my ears. She was right.”

Unsurprisingly, the nuptials were approved at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, and the event was all a bit special.

“I walked down the aisle in January in the white wedding dress I’ve always dreamt of,” she raved, before revealing the newlyweds went on to do all the typical newlywed things (although she thankfully stopped short of a full bedroom expose).

“We had our honeymoon in LA and I wanted us to climb up to the Hollywood sign together. I had to carry him.”

TO READ THE ARTICLE IN GERMAN AND IN ENGLISH, SEE UNDER THE CUT

Der Kanadier David Cronenberg hat zum ersten Mal in Hollywood gedreht – das Familien-Horrordrama “Maps To The Stars”. Darin zerbricht eine Familie an ihrem verbissenen Kampf um Erfolg und an einem dunklen Geheimnis. Von Dorothee Krings

Sie trägt lange schwarze Handschuhe über ihren Narben, weil das Feuer sie fast verzehrt hat. Dabei wollte Agatha die anderen aus der Welt brennen, den Vater, der als esoterischer Psycho-Motivator alternde Stars ausnimmt, und die Mutter, die nur Augen für den kleinen Bruder hatte, der als Kinderstar in Hollywood auch schon ein Vermögen verdient hat. Vielleicht trieb sie Eifersucht, vielleicht die Hellsichtigkeit eines Kindes, das in der Filmwelt aufwächst und die Verlogenheit, den Neid und die Ängste der Erwachsenen durchschaut. Jedenfalls ist Agatha ein Monster. Und sie ist zurück in L.A. – gekommen, um die Familie noch einmal zu besuchen.

Zum ersten Mal hat der kanadische Regisseur David Cronenberg in Hollywood gedreht. Und gleich macht er die Hauptstadt der Eitelkeit und des verbissenen Konkurrenzkampfes selbst zum Thema. “Maps To The Stars” ist eine biestige Satire auf die Scheinwelt Hollywoods, in der es um Aussehen und Beziehungen geht und hinter allem um Geld. Neu ist das freilich nicht. Auf dieser Flanke wurde Hollywood schon öfter attackiert. Cronenberg hat kein neues Thema, aber eine neue Methode: Genremixtur.

Der Film ist zugleich auch noch ein Familiendrama, ein Horrorthriller mit Splatter-Elementen und eine schwarze Romanze. Doch hat Cronenberg aus all den Genres kein Amalgam geschmolzen. Der Film kippt von einer Erzählweise in die nächste, hat bewusste Brüche. Als habe ein Drehbuchautor an seiner Geschichte herumdoktern müssen, um sie mit immer neuen Anreizen zu verkaufen. Man kann das als Kritik am System Hollywoods auf formaler Ebene werten. In jedem Fall schadet die erzählerische Merkwürdigkeit nicht, sie ist der eigentliche Reiz dieses seltsamen Films, in dem sich der Zuschauer nie zuhause, nie sicher fühlen kann. Eher wie ein Versuchskaninchen, das auf abenteuerliche Umschwünge in der Erzählhaltung reagieren muss.

Eigentlich ist die Handlung aber gar nicht wichtig. Cronenberg stellt eher ein Ensemble merkwürdiger Figuren zusammen, die der Zuschauer eine Weile beobachten darf. Allesamt sind sie überzeichnet, jedoch nicht auf vorhersehbare Art, man studiert sie also gern. Und sie werden von Schauspielern gespielt, die ihre Chance wittern und den Film phasenweise an sich reißen.

Allen voran Julianne Moore, die eine in die Jahre gekommene Diva spielt, die nicht nur mit dem eigenen Alter, dem Verblassen ihres Ruhms, dem Ausgemustertwerden hadert, sondern auch noch dem Vorbild der eigenen Mutter genügen will. Die war in den guten alten schwarz-weißen Tagen Hollywoods ein Star und soll nun in einem Biopic wieder auferstehen.

Natürlich will die Tochter die Rolle. Vor allem auch, weil es womöglich ihre letzte Chance ist, eine bedeutende Figur zu ergattern. Moore spielt diese Frau mit der aggressiven Egozentrik einer alternden Diva, verzweifelt selbstbewusst, unwirsch, launisch und hinter all dem unendlich verletzlich, weil ein Schauspieler nun mal nicht anders kann, als den Verlust einer Rolle, die Ablehnung seiner Kunst, persönlich zu nehmen.

Moore selbst hat diese Sorgen freilich nicht, sie bekam für diese Rolle bereits eine Palme in Cannes und darf für die Oscars zumindest hoffen.

Auch Mia Wasikowska, das blasse, auf spannende Art stets ein wenig in sich gekehrte Mädchen, macht aus der Rolle der Agatha ein sehenswertes Solo. Sie ist ein unscheinbarer Racheengel, ein Teufel in Gestalt des intelligenten Teenagers, ein beunruhigender Nerd. Weil sie als Kind Feuer legte und ihre Familie beinahe tötete, verbrachte sie ihre Jugend in einer Psychiatrie. Die Familie hat sie verstoßen, doch Agatha kehrt zurück an den Hollywood-Boulevard, um ein dunkles Familiengeheimnis zu lüften. Natürlich geht das nicht schmerzfrei.

John Cusack genießt seine Rolle als New-Age-Seelenmasseur, und auch Kinderstar Evan Bird spielt seine Rolle als arrogantes Schnöselkind mit sichtlicher Lust.

Am Ende drischt Cronenberg noch einmal herzhaft ein auf das heuchlerische Personal, das für Erfolg seine Seele verkauft. Gut möglich, dass er nicht nur Hollywood im Blick hatte.

The Canadian David Cronenberg has filmed for the first time in Hollywood – the family-horror drama ” Maps To The stars “. In it, a family breaks in their dogged battle for success and a dark secret.

She carries long black gloves on her scars because the fire has almost consumed her. Besides, Agatha wanted to burn the others from the world, the father who excluded her, getting older stars as an esoteric Psycho-Motivator, and the mother who had only eyes for her little brother who has already earned a status as a children’s star in Hollywood. Perhaps it is jealousy, perhaps the clairvoyance of a child who grows up in the world of cinema and sees through lying, envy and fears of the adults. Anyhow, Agatha is a monster. And she is back in L.A. – visiting the family one more time.

For the first time the Canadian director David Cronenberg has filmed in Hollywood. And immediately he shows the capital of vanity and the dogged competition there. ” Maps To The stars ” is a biestige satire on the dream world of Hollywood in which it is about appearance and relations and behind all around money. Of course this is not new. On this flank, Hollywood was attacked often. Cronenberg has no new subject, but a new method: genre mixture.

The film is at the same time a family drama, a horror thriller with splatter elements and a black romance. But Cronenberg has melted all genres with no amalgam. The film tips over from a narrative, and in the next has conscious breaks. As if a scriptwriter had had to tinker with its story to sell them with always new incentives. One can evaluate as a criticism of the system of Hollywood at formal level. In every case the narrative strangeness does not damage, it is the real attraction of this strange film in which the spectator can never feel at home, never certainly. Rather like a guinea pig who must react to complete adventurous changes in the narrative approach.

However, the business is not important at all. Cronenberg puts together an ensemble of peculiar figures which the spectator may observe for a while. All of them are oversubscribed, but not in foreseeable way, one studies them gladly. And they are played by actors who scent their chance and tear the film phase-wise in themselves.

What is enough for all is the main character by Julianne Moore who plays once the diva and who quarrels not only with her own age, her growing pale fame, to everyone’s eyes but also with the model of her own mother. She was a star during the good old black-and-white days of Hollywood and now should rise in a Biopic again.

Naturally the daughter wants the role. First of all because it is possibly her last chance to get a hold of an important role. This woman with the aggressive self-centredness of a getting an older diva is played by Moore, she despairs self-confidently, gruff to take the loss of a role, the refusal of its art, individually fickly and behind all infinitely vulnerable because an actor just cannot exist in a different way.

Moore does not have these concerns, of course, she already received for this role a palme d’or in Cannes and may at least hope for the Oscars.

A worth seeing solo comes from the role of Agatha played by Mia Wasikowska, the pale, in an exciting way, little girl who does not trust herself. She is an inconspicuous avenging angel, a devil in the form of an intelligent teenager, a worrying Nerd. Because she laid as a fire child and almost killed her family, she spent her youth in psychiatry. The family has expelled her, but Agatha turns back to Hollywood-Boulevard to air a dark family secret. Naturally it does not go painless.

John Cusack enjoys his role as a New Age-soul masseur, and also children’s star Evan Bird plays his role as an arrogant upstart child with obvious desire.

At the end Cronenberg threshes one more time heartily on the hypocritical staff which sells its soul for success. Good possibly that he had not only Hollywood in the look.

The rebellious had enough of the spotlight

As an amorous vampire in the “Twilight” films, Robert Pattinson became a teen idol. But now the British have had enough of his life as a Hollywood star and heartthrob. In independent films such as “Maps to the Stars” and “The Rover” he shows his rebellious side.

For the dream factory that is a disaster. As it builds a young actor with the “Twilight” series, the star of the age of 28 already turns from the blockbuster movie. Robert Pattinson has had enough of a life in the spotlight. The final straw was brought by the tabloids. They speculated about the end of the relationship between Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who were a pair since the filming of “Twilight”: Did he cheat during filming of “Remember Me” (2010) with Emilie de Ravin? Stewart has cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders? “The gossip mags have so many lies spread that I try now to escape them,” says Pattinson during the interview.

No groupies

Because the loss of privacy is a side effect of being a teen idol, Pattinson may provisionally not be the heartthrob in romantic movies. “I prefer working with independent filmmakers like David Cronenberg, who I admire,” he says. In fact, reading the list of directors of his recent films like the Who’s Who of independent cinema: Cronenberg, Werner Herzog, James Gray, Anton Corbijn, Olivier Assayas.

Pattinson has recently presented in Cannes “The Rover” by director David Michôd, who at the Sundance Festival won the grand jury prize for his first film “Animal Kingdom” in 2010. Pattinson fought ten years after the collapse of the world economy with a bunch of thugs in Down Under for survival. The futuristic Western can be read as a parable of how greed plunges humanity into destruction. The film was shot in the deepest outback in South Australia. “I have enjoyed the solitude,” says Pattinson. “Because I played my role after work gladly. In a Hollywood production it is impossible. Since I was always “attacked” by a group of assholes who want to pose for a souvenir photo with me, “says Pattinson, who dreamed as a child of a film career.

“Now I can rotate with directors that I admire.”

Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson was born in 1986 in London. His father was selling vintage cars, his mother was a model. At twelve Pattinson also began to pose as a model, but soon he was drawn to the theater. The breakthrough in the film he made in 2005 as Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. He then had to decide: film career or studying political science. He chose film because he could thus discover the world. “I was intrigued by the gypsy life especially. I like to rotate three months in one place and then move on. I have no longer traveled for ten years for the holidays, because I do not have need: Through my work I explore the whole world.”

Gifted Musician

After the success of the “Twilight” films that grossed alone in the cinema over $ 3.3 billion, Pattinson was swimming in money. He received a salary of $ 25 million and 7.5 percent of box office receipts alone for the last two parts. Then he has sold a mansion in Los Angeles for over $ 6,000,000. “I recently sold again. The house was as big as the Palace of Versailles. Of this I had little, because I was hardly at home. I then again maybe buy one if I have children. ”

Pattinson’s commitment opened the wallet investors.

If Pattinson is not recording, he devoted himself to music. The Englishman plays guitar and piano. He has already written two pop ballads for the soundtrack of “Twilight” and sung them. “I just composed new songs. Actually, I would release an album, but I’m too sensitive to pocket criticism. I am criticized as an actor all the time, that’s enough. ”

For David Cronenberg

Robert Pattinson has the reputation of being a bitchy interview partners. But in the interview, he seems relaxed, answers reflected. “I am pleased that now the second act started in my career,” he says. The turn was made thanks to David Cronenberg. The Canadian asked him to star in ‘Cosmopolis’ based on the novel by Don DeLillo. Pattinson accepted because he saw how difficult it was for the director to finance his vision. His commitment to investors opened the wallet. In the film, Pattinson plays a billionaire in a limousine driving in a Manhattan rampage in the anti-globalization – a film that developed a strong suction, but towards the end loses all power. “It is a great film that is underrated,” insists the British. “It is the first film of which I am so proud that I think everyone is an idiot if they do not like it.” In the new Cronenberg film “Maps to the Stars» Pattinson plays now a different role: one of a driver, driving the stars in a chauffeured limousine through Los Angeles. From this intertextuality, he underlines the aspiration to create a character Mime an œuvre.

Arrogance is his

Auteurs appreciate Pattinson’s recalcitrance, his willingness to play unsympathetic guys – arrogance is particularly well. “He has a strong physical presence and a beautiful face, but a bizarre look,” says director David Michôd. “And he is hungry for challenging roles. He came with his own vision for the character to audition, which impressed me. ”

Because of his existentialist rebel gaze Pattinson is often compared to James Dean. In the movie “Life” by Anton Corbijn, who portray himself as cover photographer for U2 a name, nevertheless he does not play the iconic figure, but a photographer who portrayed Dean. “With a photographer to shoot a film about photography, it has been fun. Anton has taught me how to deal with a Leica camera. I have exposed 25 rolls of film on set and then developped them myself. ”

The question of whether he himself once want to direct, Robert Pattinson acknowledged but only with a mischievous laugh.

Here is the original article:

Der Widerborstige hat genug vom Rampenlicht

Als verliebter Vampir in den «Twilight»-Filmen wurde Robert Pattinson zum Teenie-Idol. Doch nun hat der Brite genug vom Dasein als Hollywoodstar und Herzensbrecher. In Autorenfilmen wie «Maps to the Stars» und «The Rover» zeigt er sich von seiner rebellischen Seite.

Für die Traumfabrik ist das eine Katastrophe. Da baut sie einen jungen Schauspieler mit der «Twilight»-Serie zum Star auf, und dann wendet sich dieser bereits mit 28 Jahren vom Blockbusterkino ab. Robert Pattinson hat genug vom Leben im Rampenlicht. Das Fass zum Überlaufen brachte die Boulevardpresse. Sie spekulierte über das Ende der Beziehung zwischen Pattinson und Kristen Stewart, die seit den Dreharbeiten zu «Twilight» ein Paar waren: Hat er beim Dreh von «Remember Me» (2010) mit Emilie de Ravin angebändelt? Hat Stewart ihn mit Regisseur Rupert Sanders betrogen? «Die Klatschpostillen haben so viele Lügen verbreitet, dass ich ihnen nun zu entrinnen versuche», sagt Pattinson beim Interview.

Keine Groupies

Weil der Verlust der Privatsphäre eine Begleiterscheinung des Daseins als Teenie-Idol ist, mag Pattinson vorläufig nicht mehr den Herzensbrecher in romantischen Filmen geben. «Ich arbeite lieber mit unabhängigen Cineasten wie David Cronenberg, die ich bewundere», sagt er. Tatsächlich liest sich die Liste der Regisseure seiner jüngsten Filme wie das Who is Who des Autorenkinos: Cronenberg, Werner Herzog, James Gray, Anton Corbijn, Olivier Assayas.

Pattinson hat zuletzt in Cannes «The Rover» von Regisseur David Michôd vorgestellt, der mit seinem Erstling «Animal Kingdom» 2010 am Sundance Festival den Grossen Jurypreis gewann. Darin kämpft Pattinson zehn Jahre nach dem Zusammenbruch der Weltwirtschaft mit einer Bande von Gangstern in Down Under ums Überleben. Den futuristischen Western kann man als Parabel darauf lesen, wie Gier die Menschheit ins Verderben stürzt. Gedreht wurde im tiefsten Outback im Süden Australiens. «Die Abgeschiedenheit habe ich genossen», erzählt Pattinson. «Denn ich spiele am Feierabend meine Rolle gerne weiter. Bei einer Hollywoodproduktion ist das unmöglich. Da belagert mich immer eine Gruppe von Arschlöchern, die für eine Erinnerungsfoto mit mir posieren will», sagt Pattinson, der schon als Kind von einer Filmkarriere träumte.

«Nun kann ich mit Regisseuren drehen, die ich bewundere.»

Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson kam 1986 in London zur Welt. Sein Vater verkaufte Oldtimer-Autos, seine Mutter war Model. Mit zwölf begann auch Pattinson als Model zu posieren, doch bald zog es ihn zum Theater. Den Durchbruch beim Film schaffte er 2005 als Cedric Diggory in «Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire». Danach musste er sich entscheiden: Filmkarriere oder Studium der Politwissenschaften. Er hat sich für Film entschieden, weil er dadurch die Welt entdecken konnte. «Mich hat vor allem das Zigeunerleben gereizt. Mir gefällt es, drei Monate an einem Ort zu drehen und dann weiterzuziehen. Ich bin seit zehn Jahren nicht mehr in die Ferien gereist, weil ich sie nicht nötig habe: Durch meine Arbeit entdecke ich die ganze Welt.»

Begnadeter Musiker

Nach dem Erfolg der «Twilight»-Filme, die allein im Kino über 3,3 Milliarden Dollar einspielten, schwamm Pattinson im Geld. Er erhielt allein für die letzten beiden Teile eine Gage von 25 Millionen Dollar und 7,5 Prozent der Kasseneinnahmen. Darauf hat er sich für über 6 Millionen Dollar eine Villa in Los Angeles geleistet. «Kürzlich habe ich sie wieder verkauft. Das Haus war so gross wie das Schloss Versailles. Davon hatte ich wenig, weil ich kaum zu Hause war. Ich kaufe dann vielleicht wieder eines, wenn ich einmal Kinder habe.»

Pattinsons Zusage öffnete Investoren das Portemonnaie.

Wenn Pattinson nicht dreht, widmet er sich der Musik. Der Engländer spielt Gitarre und Klavier. Er hat bereits zwei Popballaden für den Soundtrack von «Twilight» geschrieben und selber gesungen. «Ich komponiere gerade neue Songs. Eigentlich würde ich ein Album veröffentlichen, aber ich bin zu sensibel, um Kritik einzustecken. Ich werde schon als Schauspieler die ganze Zeit bewertet, das reicht.»

Für David Cronenberg

Robert Pattinson steht im Ruf, ein zickiger Interviewpartner zu sein. Aber im Gespräch wirkt er entspannt, antwortet reflektiert. «Ich bin zufrieden, dass nun der zweite Akt in meiner Karriere angefangen hat», sagt er. Die Wende leitete David Cronenberg ein. Der Kanadier fragte ihn für die Hauptrolle in «Cosmopolis» nach dem gleichnamigen Roman von Don DeLillo an. Pattinson sagte auch deshalb zu, weil er sah, wie schwierig es für den Regisseur war, seine Vision zu finanzieren. Seine Zusage öffnete den Investoren das Portemonnaie. Im Film fährt Pattinson als Milliardär in einer Limousine durch ein Manhattan, in dem Globalisierungsgegner randalieren – ein Film, der einen starken Sog entwickelt, aber gegen Schluss jegliche Spannung verliert. «Es ist ein grosser Film, der unterschätzt wird», insistiert der Brite. «Es ist der erste Film, auf den ich so stolz bin, dass ich jeden für einen Idioten halte, der ihn nicht mag.» Im neuen Cronenberg-Film «Maps to the Stars» spielt Pattinson nun die andere Rolle: jene des Fahrers, der Stars in einer Limousine durch Los Angeles chauffiert. Mit dieser Intertextualität unterstreicht er den Anspruch, als Charaktermime ein Œuvre zu schaffen.

Arroganz steht ihm

Autorenfilmer schätzen Pattinsons Widerborstigkeit, seine Bereitschaft, auch unsympathische Kerle zu spielen – Arroganz steht ihm besonders gut. «Er hat eine starke körperliche Präsenz und ein schönes Gesicht, aber einen bizarren Blick», sagt Regisseur David Michôd. «Und er ist hungrig nach anspruchsvollen Rollen. Er kam mit einer eigenen Vision für die Figur zum Vorsprechen, das hat mich beeindruckt.»

Wegen seines existenzialistischen Rebellenblicks wird Pattinson oft mit James Dean verglichen. Im Film «Life» von Anton Corbijn, der sich als Cover-Fotograf für U2 einen Namen machte, spielt er aber nicht die Kultfigur, sondern einen Fotografen, der Dean porträtierte. «Mit einem Fotografen einen Film übers Fotografieren zu drehen, hat Spass gemacht. Anton hat mir beigebracht, wie man mit einer Leica-Kamera umgeht. Ich habe am Set 25 Filmrollen belichtet und dann selber entwickelt.»

Die Frage, ob er auch selber einmal Regie führen möchte, quittiert Robert Pattinson allerdings nur mit einem spitzbübischen Lachen.

My friend Victoire went to London and brought back this newspaper where she found this review I found interesting (even if sometimes the reviewer uses terms as R-Patz once). Needed to share with you all! (Parts I found really nice about Rob are in strong)

The wizards of Oz

THE ROVER, 4/5 STARS

The opening shot of this intense, dark and thoroughly watchable thriller tells us that the film we about to watch takes place “10 years after the Collapse”. What exactly has collapsed is not explained, but it’s obvious civiliation as we know it no longer exists.

It isn’t a nuclear holocaust, or an environmental disaster, as was so ably portrayed in the film version of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: instead it seems to be related to the fall of Western civilisations backed by international finance. What is left is a straggly, rag-tag place where the hunt for bullets, fuel, water and food is the only game in town.

We meet scruffy loner Eric (Guy Pearce) as he pulls up at a roadside diner, populated by zonked-out staff playing loud Cambodian pop music.
As he sits nursing a dring, he notices his car is being stolen by three men, one of whom is badly wounded. He gives chase in the vehicule they have abandoned, and what rolls out is a story of how Eric wants his car back, and will stop at nothing to ensure this happens.

The Rover looks brilliant. The action runs accross the backdrop of the Aussie Outback. It is as iconic and beautiful as Ansel Adam’s old West.
Eric, covered in grime and sweat, has an intensely lost sense about his eyes, and Pearce manages to say much without opening his mouth. It is intriguing.
His sidekick – the brother of one of the gang, who he picks up en route, is played by Robert Pattinson, who made his name playing a hunky vampire. The hearthrob R-Patz turns in such a performance you will forget you are watching the pin-up who made the Twilight franchise. He is stumbling, bloody, brooding and brilliant.

Perhaps, best of all is what isn’t said: there is no need to expand on how Western capitalism has collapsed, leaving behind a dog-eat-dog world of drifters and misfits, survivors who live by a violent mantra. They’re folk who fester through days, stumbling from one deserted outpost to another, looking for canned goods, bullets and petrol. Nor do we need to much background on the leads: what the gang Eric is chasing have been up to is best left to the imagination, as why he should want his car back so badly when they have abandoned a perfectly good 4X4.

Above all, this violent, atmospheric and gripping film is a contemporary Western, a road movie with a dash of Mad Max about it. An interesting choice for Pattinson, the perfect vehicule for Pearce.

Thank you Victoire for the newspaper!
