John Hillcoat’s surefire Oscar contender The Road is an unrelentingly harsh depiction of the last stragglers of humanity trying to survive after the collapse of civilization. Based on Cormac McCarthy’s book, it centers around a father (Viggo Mortensen) and his son (Kodi-Smit McPhee) finding it harder and harder to hold on to what makes them human. In this clip, we see memories of the time shortly after the cataclysm, and the mother (Charlize Theron) expressing her absolute desperation in the face of this impossible adversity.
