the Road

Back in 2006 Cormac McCarthy wrote the environmental themed post apocalyptic thriller titled the Road. The Road earned McCarthy the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and other literary awards. The film started shooting in Febuary 2008 and was originally planned to be released in November of the same year but "the studio decided that the film would benefit from a longer post-production process and a less crowded release calendar." Regardless of their reasons, early screening of the film have resulted in great reviews. According to Esquire magazine's Tom Chiarella, its "a brilliantly directed adaptation of a beloved novel, a delicate and anachronistically loving look at the immodest and brutish end of us all. You want them to get there, you want them to get there, you want them to get there — and yet you do not want it, any of it, to end". We can hardly wait till October 2009 to see it.
