MON­DAY ON THE ROAD

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

11PM, SBS ★★★

Well-read types of a cer­tain age or in­cli­na­tion will be un­able to re­sist the in­tense grav­i­ta­tional pull of this adap­ta­tion of the sem­i­nal Jack Ker­ouac novel. To get the most from the long and wind­ing jour­ney ahead, some knowl­edge of the book (or at the very least, its rep­u­ta­tion) is com­pul­sory. If so, this aim­less, he­do­nis­tic trek around the US in the late 1940s will cap­ti­vate and se­date in equal mea­sure.
