The screenplay for the film version of Cormac McCarthy's searing novel The Road, adapted by award-­winning playwright Joe Penhall. Cormac McCarthy's post-­apocalyptic novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006. Released shortly after his No Country for Old Men was turned into an Oscar-­winning film, The Road's cinema version of the novel is directed by John Hillcoat, stars Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron and was an official selection for the 66th Venice Film Festival 2009. Joe Penhall's adaptation is a faithful, careful crafting of the book for the screen, fully evoking the atmosphere of menace and desperation. The Road is set a few years after an unexplained cataclysmic world disaster has left the earth poisoned, barren and hostile. While ash blocks out the sun and the earth no longer fosters plant or animal life, men either starve or join the marauding gangs of cannibals. The plot follows an unnamed father . . .

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.­"
A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white girl.

The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
One of the best-­loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many dis-­tinctions since its original publication in 1960.
