The Road, A Great Feel Bad Movie

We went to see The Road tonight. It's a film based on the novel with the same name. The story is about a young boy and his father on an uncertain journey set in a bleak post-apocalyptic world. It was a really good movie, but at the same time it's probably the most 'feel bad' movie that I can remember watching.

Anyway, the movie is definitely worth checking out. Just don't go in expecting sunshine and roses.

Also, make sure and read the book first and not the other way around.

The book and the film are quite similar and follow one another nearly to a tee.

I made the mistake of seeing the film first and then reading the book and I feel almost as if I was cheated out of a lot of the beauty of Mcarthy's writing because I had images from the film still stuck in my mind.

Both were really good though, but just read the book first or else you cheat yourself out of a lot of things.
