The Road DVD|
Directed by John Hilcoat and starring Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee, The Road is an Oscar-winning survival drama based on Cormac McCarthy's 2006 novel of the same name.
This remarkable, life-enhancing film follows a father and son struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. A devastating, unexplained catastrophe occurred a number of years previous, destroying civilisation, killing all plants and animals and blocking-out the sun. The only humans that made it through the disaster have been reduced to scavenging or cannibalism. The father and son must bravely journey south where they believe it will be warmer. All they have is a gun, the clothes they're wearing and each other! But will that be enough to survive the lawless gangs that roam the streets? And if they do make it to their destination alive, what will await them when they get there?

Director John Hillcoat's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. In the burnt-out wasteland of a post-apocalyptic America, a man (Viggo Mortensen) and his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) try to survive by any means possible as they follow a desolate, corpse-strewn road towards the coast, where they hope to find some kind of a future for themselves. Travelling with only the clothes they are wearing, a small cart of scavenged food and a pistol with two bullets as protection, they struggle to survive in the ravaged landscape, encountering a few other desperate survivors along the way.

The Road esther james
This is not a film you want to watch for a few laughs and light hearted enterainment. The subject matter of the film involves unrelenting misery in the wake of the apocolypse, which has turned many of the remaining humans on earth to canibalism. Despite the depressing subject matter, it is compelling viewing as you watch the daily struggle of father and son to survive. There are heart stopping scenes and also heart warming ones as you see the love that they have for each other. I really enjoyed the film but will need to prepare myself to feel quite sad if I watch it again as I did have a good blub at the end of this one.
