Jack Kerouac's seminal pseudo-autobiography finally heads to the big screen thanks to director Walter Salles Jr. (The Motorcycle Diaries) and 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. José Rivera provides the adaptation.~Jeremy Wheeler
My son had read the book and recommended the movie to me. Not sure how it followed the book. At times the movie was pretty gritty but it was definitely an unusual slice of early 20th century Americana.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Dont get lost on the road
I suppose, if you have nothing to do, you could kill about 90 minutes watching this. But i would have to be snowed in for a few days before I watched it again.
I know... this sounds like I hated the movie. Not so much.
I just found it boring.
