The Road

Cormac McCarthy's monumentally depressing, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel goes Hollywood with Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings) as a father solemnly guiding his preteen son through the ravaged landscape of a post-apocalyptic America. The film retains McCarthy's minimalist story and grim tone, but it's not exactly a larf watching a father and son trudge though a colorless wasteland and slowly starve to death while trying not to get eaten by desperate cannibals. 111 minutes R.
