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