The Road

The Road (John Hillcoat, 2009) Viggo Mortensen, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce

Blurb: In a dangerous post-apocalyptic world, an ailing father defends his son as they slowly travel to the sea.

Outstanding film based on Cormac McCarthy's novel, and from the director who gave us To Have and to Hold (1997), and The Proposition (2005). All of his films are bleak, and this is the bleakest.
