On The Road

140 minutes
Directed by Walter Salles USA
Distributed by Icon

Monday 24 September, 7.30pm

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 liberty, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.

The remarkable screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's cult classic novel of the 1950's and the "beat generation", starring Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) Sam Riley (Brighton Rock), and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga).
