The Road (2009)
Based on a book by Cormac McCarthy – so you know it’s going to be dark. Viggo Mortensen trudges through an unrelentingly bleak world devastated by an unspecified extinction event, trying to keep himself and his son alive in the face of the worst nature can throw at them – also, cannibals. You’ll need the Skittles to hand to pull you back out of this graying survival realism. See if you can spot Michael K. Williams (Omar from The Wire) in a small role.
