On The Road

Kirsten Ste­wart and Gar­rett Hed­lund star in this movie adap­ta­tion of the Amer­i­can cult novel by Jack Ker­ouac.

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PAY TV HIGHLIGHTS -

Based on Jack Ker­ouac’s beloved novel, this beau­ti­fullyshot film ver­sion is the story of Sal Par­adise ( Sam Ri­ley), an as­pir­ing New York writer, and Dean Mo­ri­arty ( Gar­rett Hed­lund), a dev­as­tat­ingly charm­ing ex- con, mar­ried to the very lib­er­ated Mary­lou ( Kirsten Ste­wart, pic­tured with Hed­lund). De­ter­mined not to get stuck in a con­stricted life, the three friends cut their ties and take to the road in search of free­dom. It lacks some of the book’s ex­cite­ment, but this is still a jour­ney worth tak­ing.
