In this exclusive shot from the set of The Road (out later this year), a father (Viggo Mortensen) comforts his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) after an apocalypse sends them on a harrowing journey to find safety. "It's relentlessly challenging," Mortensen says of the drama, which is based on Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. "Emotionally, this might be the most demanding role I've had."
