About On The Road

Based on the classic semi-autobiographical Beat novel by Jack Kerouac. Budding writer Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) is wondering where his life is going. He hangs out aimlessly in dive bars with his poet friend Carlo Marx (Tom Sturridge) and cannot find any creative inspiration. When he meets free spirit Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and his 16-year-old partner Marylou (Kristen Stewart), Sal is finally driven to embark on a cross country road trip. Whilst enjoying his freedom from the constraints of life in the 1950s, Sal becomes infatuated with Dean's wild lifestyle and maybe even Dean himself as he discovers his own version of America. The depiction of consequence-free drug-taking and sexual freedom might seem almost quaint now, but on its publication the novel announced a new generation of dangerous counter-cultural youth.
