The Road - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Based on Cormac McCarthy's beloved, best-selling and Pulitzer Prize winning novel, Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen leads an all-star cast in the big screen adaptation of The Road, the epic post-apocalyptic tale of a journey taken by a father (Viggo Mortensen) and his young son (newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee) across a barren landscape that was blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed civilization and most life on earth.

MOVIE REVIEW

Easily one of the most depressing movies of 2009, The Road places the audience in the middle of the ultimate hellhole, a desolate, post-apocalyptic Earth that has long since died. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy, the author of No Country for Old Men, The Road is one of the better movies of the year - but it doesn't quite live up to its source material.
