The film directed by John Hillcoat, features an all-star cast including Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Robert Duvall, and introduces major talent, Kodi Smit McPhee, with a soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The first great masterpiece of the globally warmed generation. Here is an American classic which, at a stroke, makes McCarthy a contender for the Nobel Prize for Literature . . . An absolutely wonderful book that people will be reading for generations. -- Andrew O'Hagan
A work of such terrible beauty that you will struggle to look away. -- Tom Gatti * The Times *
So good that it will devour you, in parts. It is incandescent. -- Niall Griffiths * Daily Telegraph *
You will read on, absolutely convinced, thrilled, mesmerised. All the modern novel can do is done here. -- Alan Warner * Guardian *
