open road

The movie version of Cormac McCarthy's The Road has just been screened at the Venice Film Festival. The movie stars Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron, with Kodi Smit-McPhee as the boy.

The Independent says:

It plays like a dystopian version of Huck Finn ...

In creating this barren taciturn world, it was obviously more fun to be one of the production designers than the dialogue writer.

If sometimes the film's earnestness bordered on the 'inadvertently comic' (says the reviewer) overall it was 'absorbing and affecting'.
