Road, The (2009) 
Beautiful Examination of Humanity at it's Worst
4/4 stars

A deeply effective drama depicting one of the most bleak post-apocalypse settings I've seen in any film. The story is focused on the long trek of a father and son through the starkly grey atmosphere of a ravaged planet. This dark, depressing journey is upheld by the handful of hope that the father instills in his young son. The strength of their bond propels the pair to explore the nature of good will towards others in this time of desperation. The father is relentlessly selfless and protective towards his boy, never ceasing to teach him as much as possible about humanity before their unknown inevitable departure. Constant danger and lack of food come second to raising his child. Love and care is felt from each of them. The son's optimism for others in these harsh times eventually grabs hold of the father. It culminates in a heartbreaking, but also beautifully hopeful finale in which the true spirit of goodwill is shown to continue on. The acting, cinematography, and impeccable score could not be more fitting for a heavyhearted emotional climax. Absolutely terrific!
