Re: “Grim postapocalypse in The Road

It's true that this film is grim - but it's not nearly so grim as the book, and I think this is because we are not consistently confronted by human faces in the book. There are few things that communicate hope so much as the human face - even the broken, disheartened, lost human face. The actors cannot avoid making hopeful gestures in the film that are totally absent from the pages of the novel. Yes, the movie is great - indeed, I think it's the best movie that could have been made from such a devastating book, but if you really want grim and thought provoking, read the novel!
