A film adapted from the book by Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic tale about a journey of a father and son, called The Man and The Boy in the book, across a desolate America practically devoid of life and humanity.

--- spoiler alert ----

I find the ending of the movie very interesting: where the boy meets a man, woman, kids and a dog, who seem to be the only good people he's met so far. One hypothesis about this ending is that this final scene and meeting might be a fantasy created by the boy, as a coping mechanism after his father has just died. He sees the other boy earlier in the movie, and when he and his father are in the bomb shelter, his father hears a dog. Maybe after the trauma of seeing his father die, the boy just strings together these memories to form a visual hallucination. Or, maybe the family is real, but aren't actually good people, since all the others in the story have turned out to be cannibalistic/insane/evil. Or, maybe the family he meets really are good people who will save him, and this ending is a symbol of humanity's kindness and community still finding its way in the harshest of circumstances.

With a surplus of post-apocalyptic/disaster flicks present in today's film circle, the Road does what very few films in any genre seem capable of doing. Here is a picture that in it's own discreteness captures the realism of a holocaust horror, combining the absolute worst possible future with the most profoundly beautiful human characteristics that keep the main characters persevering. Not only does the story accurately exhibit the polar opposite aspects of a post apocalyptic existence, but the cinematography used during the flashbacks of a life full of color and hope many take for granted, is excellently positioned with the dark, dismal, and often terrifying reality that is the Road. The score was also fantastic and perfectly appropriate for the film.
