The Road

Feature, 2009 Chockstone Pictures for The Weinstein Co. Creator Cormac McCarthy Director John Hillcoat Starring Viggo Mortenson & Charlize Theron

Adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning book by Cormac McCarthy, adapted by Joe Penhall.  A father and his son walk alone through burned America.  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.

Nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival 2009.
