In a post-apocalyptic world, a father struggles to keep himself and his young son alive as they search for any form of sanctuary. This movie is not easy to watch, for the world that’s detailed is bleak, depressing and frightening. Viggo Mortensen gives a heart-wrenching performance as the father who scrambles to provide any sort of hope for his hungry, withering son. With such a feeling of hopelessness, it’s hard to see how this story can give off any sort of uplifting conclusion. However, every heart-felt moment between the father and son contrasts the doom. A dark, yet beautiful film.
