Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Robert Duvall, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Guy Pearce

Story: 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 and his young son across a barren landscape that was blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed civilization and most life on earth. (The Weinstein Company)

Rated: R for some violence, disturbing images and language

Bottom Line: Many say the book was un-filmable. I say…there was a book?! You won’t be high-fiving your buddies after this dark, somber and bleak movie – but the message amidst the horror is powerful (as are the performances that bring it all to life). It makes for a tough sit, but it’s definitely a ROAD worth traveling.
