I wanted to see the movie when it came out last year, but Meg isn't a fan of the whole post-apocalyptic thing. Meg and Scout were at a Girl Scout camp Saturday night, so I picked up the DVD. McCarthy has had a number of his books made into excellent films (No Country for Old Men is a classic), but I wasn't sure if The Road would translate as well. When you love the book, the movie can often be disappointing. The movie isn't on the same level as the book, but I definitely wasn't disappointed. I love Viggo Mortensen, and his spot-on portrayal of the Dad makes this movie worth watching. The Road isn't for everyone, but it is a powerful film in it's own right.
