The movie "The Road" is based on the novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy.

He also wrote "No Country For Old Men"

Well, what did you think?

I haven't seen it yet, but I did just finish the book.

If the movie is half as depressing as the book I may have to shoot myself.

A post apocalyptic tale of a man travelling the wasted land trying to keep himself and his son safe.

The world they try to survive in is as grey as the print on the book's pages.

As each day ends the only thing they have to look forward to is, at best, another day.

Dodging roving bands of cannibals and constantly looking out for something to eat. The only thing that keeps them alive is the fact that they're just not ready to die, yet.

Even the ending couldn't be called hopeful.

Just less hopeless.
