The Road – Starring Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron, and more. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don’t know what awaits them there. They have nothing but a single gun to defend themselves (against the lawless cannibalistic bands that stalk the road), the clothes they are wearing, a rusting shopping cart of scavenged food…and each other.
