"The Road," the post-apocalyptic movie based on the Cormac McCarthy book, is in wide release now. The movie premiered at The American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre, and featured a Q+A with director John Hillcoat and Viggo Mortensen. They had high praise for the boy who plays "the boy," Kodi Smit-McPhee. Here's a short excerpt.

Thanks to the American Cinematheque for providing the audio, and to former AC film programmer Chris D, who moderated the interview, and started by asking what brought the two men to the project.
