Viggo Mortensen in The RoadAfter a global cataclysm has caused an extinction event, a man (Viggo Mortensen) and his young son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) struggle to survive. They scavenge for supplies and avoid roaming gangs as they travel on a road to the coast in the hope that it will be warmer.

The circumstances of the apocalyptic event are never explained. According to director John Hillcoat, “That’s what makes it more realistic, then it immediately becomes about survival and how you get through each day as opposed to what actually happened.”

Based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy; screenplay by Joe Penhall. The film has been critically acclaimed, having won five awards and been nominated for 32 more.
