    Saw the movie this past weekend and was really preettty good. As for the wife she commits suicide in the movie as well by taking off her coats and such and then walking out into the woods in the middle of winter, surely she dies. But yes from everything I have read about the book the movie is a departure but if taken for what it is it is a good movie, sort of like the new Star Trek if taken outside of any previous Star Trek knowledge it is good.

    I would definitely recomend this movie. You might have to go to a small independent movie theater like I did until it is out in wide release. If you like this one might want to consider The Book Of Eli coming out on Jan 15.

    I just saw the trailer, there are some major deviations from the book that skew the plot more towards 'Global Climate Change'.
    Also, the novel takes place about 40 years after a global cataclysm, the boy is the second or 3rd generation born after SHTF. The father's wife is dead at the start of the book, she was blind and, after several attempts, commited suicide. Father and son are escaping south alone from thier failed community of survivors.
    The movie leaves his wife alive and condenses all the destruction of the planet into a very brief time frame (Alla 2012). I would complain but the author's purpose (as in most of his works) was to show man's inhumanity to his fellow man in a way that trancends a historical context. "Blood Meridian" is another such work by the author that is even more grotesque than "The Road".

    Well The Road was scheduled for Nov 25 release but it is not at a single theater today, Thursday, or Friday. I cannot even find a relaese date other than Nov 25th. Oh well how disappointing.

    As for the OCt 16th release that is the release date for the Film Festival that it was first shown at.

    Like a crazed idiot, i was so excited about watching this movie after reading the book, that for some reason thought it was coming out on Oct 16th, so gathered up my son and went to the local Theater, only to find out I was well over a month off. Talk about bummed out and feeling stupid.

    I saw the trailer tonight. Man, how realistic are they going to get? My wife came in on the last part of it and I explained what it was about. She's a little freaked right now. She gave me some money to go buy shells.
