The Road

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.
