Get ready to go on one roller coaster of a road trip.
The trailer for On the Road starring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, and Kristen Stewart hit the web over the weekend.
In the movie, based on Jack Kerouac novel of the same name, after the death of his father, Sal Paradise (Kerouac’s alter ego played by Riley), an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty (Hedlund), a wild and infectiously charismatic ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined to avoid the pitfalls of a narrow, prescribed life, Sal hits the road, joining Dean on what evolves into a life-changing physical and emotional odyssey. Thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, the ecstasy of experience, the connectedness of humanity and ultimately themselves.
Stewart plays Moriarty’s young wife. The movie is set to release later this year and also stars Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, and Viggo Mortensen.
