The Road is a novel written by Cormac McCarthy in 2006. It is about a post-apocalyptic journey of a father and his son that spans the course of several months after an event that destroyed almost all life on Earth. The novel won a few awards including the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the 2006 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction. The Road was even one of the books chosen to read in Oprah Winfrey’s book club in 2007, and more recently a film adaptation was released for it that starred Viggo Mortensen.

The film release was pushed back two or three times over the course of 2009. Taylor and I, who have both read the book, were eagerly awaiting the release and were crushed each time it was delayed. Finally on November 25, 2009, it was released. Unfortunately, this was only a limited release that was shown in under 400 theatres, and the film only made just under $12 million worldwide in the two months since its release.

The film seems to have skipped Medicine Hat completely and gone to the cheaper theatres, such as the Lethbridge Movie Mill. So make a day trip and go see it, and check out Red Dog Diner along the way.
