'On the Road' Review

Somehow I made it through four years of high school, four years of college, and ten years since without ever reading Jack Kerouac's 'On the Road.' I'm not sure whether that makes me hopelessly unqualified to review the new movie adaptation of it -- because I can't tell you how faithful it is -- or better suited than most because I can judge the film as a film and not as a sacred cow of literature offered up for slaughter to the great, greedy god of cinema. And as a film, it feels like the CliffsNotes version of a great book; sketchy and incomplete. That's probably the film's destiny, too: to be watched by procrastinating teens the night before a big exam in lieu of reading the real thing.

It's hard to know if Walter Salles's 'On the Road' will be a game changing film for its leads, or it will join the ranks of such dubiously famous films as Sam Raimi's 'The Gift' and 'Swordfish' for Kristen Stewart's topless scene. Sundance Selects and IFC films think they might have a winner on their hands, as they're going to release it December 21 in New York and Los Angeles, which means it's getting a Oscar qualifying run.

It's usually better to come out of the Cannes film festival with raves, or hopefully awards, Walter Salles' 'On the Road' at least left Cannes with some heat - though part of that was due to Kristen Stewart's nude scene. There's no release date just yet, but there is a new international trailer.

Kristen Stewart has never been an actress known for her smoldering passion. Bella Swan, the character to which she'll forever be linked, is a picture of repressed sexuality in the 'Twilight' films. But like her 'Twilight' co-star (and current boyfriend) Robert Pattinson, Stewart is doing everything she can to break herself out of the mold cast by that popular franchise. Enter 'On the Road.'
The Francis Ford Coppola-produced adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic just debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and while reviews on the movie are mixed, critics agree on one thing: this isn't your little sister's Kristen Stewart.

The first trailer for 'On the Road', Walter Salles' feature adaption of Jack Kerouac's famous autobiographical novel of the same name, has just been released. Starring Sam Riley ('Control') as Kerouac's alter ego, Sal Paradise, Garrett Hedlund ('Tron: Legacy') as his new pal Dean Moriarty (the fictionalized version of Neal Cassady), and Kristen Stewart as Moriarty's 16-year-old wife, the story follows them on their impromptu road trips throughout America from 1947 to 1950. During their journey, they start to change and understand who they are - self discovery if you will. Also starring in the film is Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and a Saxophone-playing Terrence Howard ('Iron Man').
