Based on the American Literary Classic Novel by Jack Kerouac who wrote the entire script on one long piece of paper!
Just after his father’s death, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou. Sal and Dean bond instantly. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.
"Salles has done the book justice by creating a film about what it means to be young and hungry for life." Rebecca Barry Ficks.com.nz
"Salles brings evocative images, fresh faces, and some fine emotional shadings to the famous tale of friendship, love, sex, drugs, jazz, literature, and the American landscape." Jon Frosc The Atlantic
"Salles's film revels in the spirit of adventure espoused by beatniks Sal and Dean but is also awake to their all-consuming selfishness, regularly undercutting the free-spirited chaos with a few much-needed reality checks." Charlie Lynn Ultra Culture
