I just finished reading Cormac McCarthy‘s book The Road which is about a father and a son walking through post-apocalypic America.  While a quick read, it’s dark and sad.  I loved the end of the book but going from page to page was a challenge as i didn’t really want to go back to the world they inhabit.  It’s cold, uncomfortable and frightening.  But that’s what makes the book good – it feels quite raw.

While the book was good, the movie looks to be even better as it puts a face and picture to the madness.  And it has an amazing cast of Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, and Robert Duvall. Can’t wait to check it out later this year.  Trailer is below:
