John Hillcoat's gripping adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic novel The Road opens in the UK today. You must go see this film.

The Road has already been longlisted in nine categories for the BAFTAs, including Best Direction, production design, cinematography and leading actor (Viggo Mortensen). A strong opening will be important for also giving the film momentum for a strong showing among the Academy Awards nominations.

The movie has gained some remarkable notices from the critics. "Cormac McCarthy's The Road was the first great novel of the new century and John Hillcoat's film adaptation is a masterpiece," wrote Tony Parsons. "Like the book, the film breaks your heart and blows your mind. Like all great art, it touches something deep in your soul and invades your dreams."

So go see it, get your mind blown, and support the wonderful John Hillcoat all the way to the Oscars.
