The Road ★★★★★

Whisper-quiet and bathed in the sooty cinematography of its wrecked landscapes, "The Road" is a meditation on both survival and giving up the fight. With that tension as its thematic catalyst, the film moves slowly and poetically through the harrowing and heartbreaking journey of its protagonists. An ideally-cast Viggo Mortensen anchors the film, but it is Kodi Smit-McPhee who provides the film its conscience. "The Road" is an unexpectedly excellent and moving film.
