Synopsis

By the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, Cormac McCarthy's The Road is the story of a father and son walking alone through burned America, heading through the ravaged landscape to the coast.

The film directed by John Hillcoat, features an all-star cast including Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Robert Duvall, and introduces major talent, Kodi Smit McPhee, with a soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

The first great masterpiece of the globally warmed generation. Here is an American classic which, at a stroke, makes McCarthy a contender for the Nobel Prize for Literature . . . An absolutely wonderful book that people will be reading for generations.

A work of such terrible beauty that you will struggle to look away.

The Times

So good that it will devour you, in parts. It is incandescent.
