Jack Kerouac’s seminal 1957 book, largely based on the road trips he took with his friends, is considered the defining work of the Beat Generation. An energetic tale of sex, jazz, and the search for “it,” the upcoming film version of On the Road stars past Oscar nominees Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen, as well as bright young Hollywood talents Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, and Kristen Stewart. Given the novel’s legacy, it’s one of the most-anticipated book-to-film adaptations in recent years. Walter Salles (Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries) directs.
