I did not see Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises. I think I was afraid to see the level of violence described, after seeing him in A History of Violence, an excellent and disturbing movie. Both he and Maria Bello, as his wife, earned academy awards, though he was never nominated, and she did not win in her category. I am planning to see The Road, which is coming out today. I was not aware of the film until a week ago, so you see I am not a Viggo groupie, but when I saw an advertisement, I decided to seek out the movie trailer. The first trailer released is morbid. The second trailer gives the world portrayed some hope. The movie is based on the 2007 Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Road, by Cormac McCarthy.
