On The Road

Rated MA

Review by David Stratton

Soon after the death of his father in New York in 1947, Sal, SAM RILEY, meets Dean, GARRETT HEDLUND, a charismatic, easy-going, hedonistic young man who loves to party, smoke pot and occasionally steal cars. Adored by his wife, Marylou, KRISTEN STEWART, Dean is both attractive and dangerous, and soon Sal joins him and Marylou on a trip out west where Dean is also involved with Camille, KIRSTEN DUNST. The adventures of these friends and lovers take them right across America.

Sal is the pseudonym for Jack Kerouac whose seminal book, On the Road, was published in 1957. The key work of the Beat Generation, Kerouac wrote about his friend Neal Cassady, calling him Dean Moriarty, as well as Beat icons like William S. Burroughs, who becomes the character of Old Bull Lee, and is played by Viggo Mortensen, and Allen Ginsberg, Carlo Marx in the book, played by Tom Sturridge in the film. For many years the book was considered unfilmable, though it was almost made with Marlon Brando soon after it was published; now Walter Salles, who made THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, another classic road movie, has tackled the formidable material, with, on the whole, a great deal of success.

The casting is fine – Garrett Hedlund is an electrifying Dean/Neal, and both Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst bring depth to their performances of complicated real-life characters. Filmed all over America, as well as in Canada and Mexico, the film is in some ways reminiscent of hippy road movies, like EASY RIDER, that were set some 20 years after the action of this movie.

Lovers of the book may feel Salles doesn’t quite get it right, but he does a very solid job.
