Definitely not one for when you’re feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Viggo Mortensen stars in this bleak movie based on Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer epic. Despite grumblings on IMDB, I thought it was brilliant. Kodi Smit-McPhee adequately played his part as the child with Charlize Theron being well, Charlize Theron (I think she’s the bomb, so I’m biased that way).
Buy a good bottle of wine and grab your partner/dog/busuk and be gripped by what lengths a father is willing to go just for his son to survive. The ending did catch me by surprise a little bit, but that has got me to adding the book to my must read list. Easily my favourite movie this year.
