Synopsis

In a post-apocalyptic world, a father must protect his son from a group of cannibals who menace the streets. They embark on a journey on foot, traversing the charred remains of North America as they make their way to the warmer southern regions, unsure of what—if anything—awaits them there.

Our take

An electrifying adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Road is both a brutal examination of mortality and a study of father-son relationships. With raw performances from Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron, it perfectly captures the dark mood of a post-apocalyptic world.
