DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is an adaptation of the classic 1950s Beat Generation novel. Parents of fans of Kristen Stewart from her Twilight films should note that this is a drama for adults, full of sex, nudity, profanity, and drug use. A number of more recognizable faces, such as Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, and Viggo Mortensen only have small, sometimes cameo, roles compared to the true leads, Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund. There is also a bit of gay content.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Although Jack Kerouac's 'On the Road' has been praised as a milestone in American literature, this film version brings into question how much of a story it really offers.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average This version of 'On the Road' may not sing or soar, but it makes some crucial adjustments to a worldview that was simultaneously liberated and fatally blinkered.

NY Post Full Review
Good What's best about the film are its quick jumps from one depravity to the next as jazz rambles on the soundtrack: Youth is a candle to be burned at both ends, with (as it was once said about Bob Dylan) a blowtorch in the middle.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles and based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac, ON THE ROAD tells the provocative story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited, fearless, fast talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart).

Traveling cross-country, Sal and Dean venture out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservatism engulfing them in search of the unknown, themselves, and the pursuit of "it" -- the pure essence of experience.

Seeking unchartered terrain and the last American frontier, the duo encounter an eclectic mix of men and women -- Bull (Viggo Mortensen), Camille (Kirsten Dunst), Carlo (Tom Sturridge), Jane (Amy Adams), Terry (Alice Braga), Galatea (Elisabeth Moss) - each impacting their journey indelibly.
