‘The Road’ is a post-apocalyptic dramatic thriller about a father and his son walking alone through burned America.
Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food–and each other.
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel from Cormac McCarthy (“No Country for Old Men”), “The Road” stars Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises) and Academy Award winners Robert Duvall (Tender Mercies) and Charlize Theron (Monster). Guy Pearce and Kodi Smit McPhee also star.
