Kerouac’s beloved Beat epic, one of the most iconic and influential of all American novels, finally comes to the big screen in this jazzy, freewheeling adaptation from Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) and executive producer Francis Ford Coppola. Aspiring writer Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) falls under the spell of “the mad ones”: intoxicating ex-con Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and his seductive wife Marylou (Kristen Stewart). The three hit the road to discover the world—and themselves. Featuring Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi.

“Visually lovely and packed full of music and atmosphere.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

124 Minutes

"Jack Kerouac’s peerless anthem to the romance of youthful freedom and experience has finally made it to the screen with its virtues and spirit intact."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
