On the Road Trailer. Walter Salles‘ On the Road (2012) movie trailer stars Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, Kirsten Dunst, and Tom Sturridge. On the Road‘s plot synopsis: “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.”
On the characters represented in On the Road:
Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty (aka the book’s fictionalized version of Neal Cassady),Sam Riley as Sal Paradise (Kerouac’s fictional alter-ego) and Kristen Stewart as Marylou…And Viggo Mortensen‘s version of William S. Burroughs
On the Road seems like a very cool period piece film about a writer.
