Transcript of The Road HONORS

Most Terrifying Passage in History

You never feel more alive than in that moment. It's a reminder of our mortality. If you look at the horror novel, or the horror movie, it's a way of safely dealing with that spike of adrenaline."

"'The Road' offers nothing in the way of escape or comfort. But its fearless wisdom is more indelible than reassurance could ever be."
