The Road

Movie • 2009 • Drama  

Report
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind and water. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the warmer south, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there.

1 dog heard in the background sniffing about. You see it at the end of the film for a brief second or two and it is perfectly fine. No idea why 6 people and 1 commenter are lying.

A child is not abused, BUT:

1) It's heavily implied that if caught by some raiders, the child would be used for very unsavory and inappropriate things, and then possibly killed.
2) Because of this, another character coaches the child how to commit suicide via a handgun in case they're ever in trouble and can't get out.

Major plot point is the gangs of cannibals who dominate the post apocalyptic land; there is a scene that shows their still alive victims.

Unsure why people marked this no. A deceased child is discovered among the rest of his family. They hung themselves.

We do not see them commit suicide onscreen. Just their bodies.
