The Road – John Hillcoat (2009)

From the director of “Ghosts Of The Civil Dead” (1988) comes “The Road”. A dystopian film playing in an apocalyptic future.

The world has burned and nothing much remains. Animals have died, trees and crops are scorched, only a few people remain. Some have allied themselves into gangs.

We follow a small family, the father and son of which try to get to the South where the climate is less severe. On their way they meet hardship and a lot of drama.

Indeed,”The Road” is not exactly a light film. It is a descent one though.
