On the Road

Jack Kerouac’s legendary work is brought to the big screen with respect and verve by Walter Salles, featuring fine performances from Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen.

Synopsis from the SFF site:

Jack Kerouac’s legendary work is brought to the big screen with respect and verve by Walter Salles (Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries). True to the groundbreaking novel, Salles’ film takes us on a sensual journey through America at a heady time. Just after his father’s death, Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty (a bravura performance by Garrett Hedlund), a devastatingly charming ex-con married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Sal and Dean bond instantly. Determined not to get locked into a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, they head off in search of the world, of other experiences and of themselves. Along the way, they encounter a band of fascinating outsiders; drink, smoke weed and take a lot of Benzedrine; have sex; discover great music; and pursue a new kind of literature. The sexually voracious and seemingly irresistible Moriarty provides the impetus for travelling, and it is his fantastical stories that provide the literary material. Also featuring fine supporting performances by Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge and Elisabeth Moss, On the Road is a stunning adaptation of a timeless classic.
