Netflix DVD "The Road"

I watched the netflix DVD "The Road" last night on my computer, here at the campground.
It was an excellent mobile living DVD. The movie is not for the faint of heart, but it is very very touching. The write up sounds a little hokey but it turned out to be excellent. I have read reviews that the movie stayed pretty loyal to the book that it was based on.

Write up from Netflix site:

The Road

2009R111 minutes
From the ash-covered, post-apocalyptic remains of Appalachia, the Father (Viggo Mortensen) and Son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) take to the road in search of a better life. But the Father's health is failing, lending urgency to a journey impeded by nomadic bands of cannibals. Charlize Theron co-stars in this adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, set in a fictional near future in which the world has been virtually destroyed.


  1. Thanks for the tip! You had me at "ash-covered, post-apocalyptic" :)

  2. Jeremy, lol in that case you will REALLY like it! ;-)

  3. I had some extra time this morning so I watched The Road. A tough flick to get through but only because it forces one to think of their life and their relationship with God. At least it did me.

    When everything in life is stripped away, who are we? What is our identity?

    Thanks again for this suggestion. I've never even heard of this movie before.

  4. I hear you Jeremy, I concur. Well said.
