Cormac McCarthy’s The Road Movie The Road is an amazing, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that contains McCarthy’s most direct treatment of love (between a father and son–and by extension, between God (Father) and sons). At the same time, it’s a post-apocalypse story that’s bleak enough in book form to chill you.  Now the first production photos are available. They don’t give away much, but sure enough, they’re bleak.
