Cormac MacCarthy's The Road is one of the best books I've ever read, and millions of other readers and the Pulitzer people agree. I've waited with a mix of impatience and skepticism for the moviefication to materialize on screen, and after loads of buzz, delays, a tonally inappropriate trailer and more delays, the movie was finally released a few weeks ago. But not in Hartford, or anywhere near Central CT.
Well, finally this weekend The Road opens at Cinema City in Hartford (and probably other locations...).
As I understand it, there is no baby roasting in the film. Boo on you, director John Hillcoat.
