The Road (2009)

The Road Movie

Starring: Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortensen, Guy Pearce, Robert Duvall, Garret Dillahunt, Michael K. Williams, Molly Parker

Director: John Hillcoat

Release Date: November 25th, 2009
Release Date: 8th January, 2010

Synopsis: A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing: just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless cannibalistic bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a rusting shopping cart of scavenged food–and each other.

One Comment on “The Road”

  1.   Aiden R said on August 18th, 2010:

    The ending has attracted such a range of opinions. I wish I could say more without spoiling it. However, I’ve now spoken to people who found it ambiguous and people who felt cheated. I know people who took something uplifting from it and others who found it disturbing.

    It certainly does work better in the novel but after now seeing the film twice and really carefully analysing the structure, I maintain that is an appropriate ending and probably the only possible ending. I’m certainly yet to hear anybody come up with a decent alternative.

    As for Mortensen: he really is amazing but I don’t think he actually messed with his health that much. Apart from some strategic and careful weight loss I think there was simply a lot of inhaling during key scenes. A make-up artist friend of mine also said that she could tell that they did a lot of shadowing make-up on his body to make it look gaunt. Still very impressive though.
