  • Jack Kerouac's seminal pseudo-autobiography finally heads to the big screen thanks to director Walter Salles Jr. (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) and executive producer Francis Ford Coppola. The tale is semi-based on the author's trips across America, with fiction intertwining with reportedly real events and people met along the way. The starring cast includes Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, and Kirsten Dunst. Jos Rivera provides the adaptation.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] vibrantly visualized period piece about the birth of the American counterculture."
    Hollywood Reporter

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Loyal to the spirit of Kerouac's book, there are times when this intoxicating brew burns across the screen with feverish passion..."
    Total Film

    "America the Beautiful has rarely looked more ripe for exploration than it does in ON THE ROAD....The movie resurrects a perennial frontier dream and invites you to barrel into the unknown with its Beat Generation legends."
    New York Times

    "ON THE ROAD is rich with evocative period atmosphere and anchored by a trio of compellingly lived-in performances from Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, and Kristen Stewart."
    Box Office

    "Salles has lovingly crafted a poetic, sensitive, achingly romantic version of the Kerouac book that captures the evanescence of its characters' existence..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[Stewart's] a live wire."
    Rolling Stone
