On The Road

A much-anticipated adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s iconic beat novel from The Motorcycle Diaries director Walter Salles. Following a bout of illness and not long after the death of his father, aspiring young writer Sal Paradise meets the charming yet unreliable Dean Moriarty. The pair immediately form a strong and enduring friendship, which takes them and Dean’s liberated young wife Marylou out on the road – in pursuit of freedom and inspiration and new experiences.

Featuring superb performances across the board and breath-taking cinematography from Eric Gautier (Into the Wild) this is a must see for fans of Kerouac’s classic work.
