John Hillcoat who wowed international audiences with his Australian Spaghetti Western, The Proposition, returns with his film adaption of Cormac McCarthy’s stellar Post-Apocalyptic tale, The Road. Being a fan of Post-Apocalyptic cinema, I can’t wait to see this one, especially considering how great The Proposition was!

SYNOPSIS

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.
