CULVER CITY, CALIF. (March 22, 2010) – The journey for survival begins on May 25th when The Road arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on the 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy ( “No Country for Old Men”), the film features an all-star cast led by Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, A History of Violence), along withAcademy Award®-winner Charlize Theron[1] (Monster, Hancock), Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall[2] (Crazy Heart, Four Christmases) Guy Pearce (Memento, The Hurt Locker) and Critic’s Choice Award Nominee for Best Young Actor, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Romulus, My Father).  Directed by John Hillcoat (The Proposition), the powerful film takes place in a ravished post-apocalyptic America as a father and his son struggle to stay alive on the journey of their lives. The Road will be available for $27.96 SRP for the DVD and $34.95 for the Blu-ray.


A father (Mortensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) fight to survive after an unspecified apocalyptic event, traveling toward the warmer coast with the hope of possible food, safety, and the company of fellow survivors.  Along their journey, with scarce shelter and resources available, they encounter many horrors and hardships, and must endure the constant fear of roaming cannibals and other desperate gangs.

Despite having next to nothing but each other, and with little more than the clothes on their back, a rusty shopping cart and a pistol for defense, they manage to maintain their humanity, decency and a human connection.

The Road has a run time of approximately 119 minutes and is rated for mature thematic material involving sexual content, and for smoking.  Artwork and clips are available for downloading at www.SPHEPUBLICITY.COM. Visit Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on the Web atwww.SonyPictures.com.
