On the Road – trailer

An adaptation of a well-loved novel, particularly one as generation-defining as Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, is always a contentious issue. From the initial trailer, Walter Salles’ effort looks set to be a truly wonderful, mesmerising adaptation.

Salles is of course best known for his earlier road movie, the breath-taking The Motorcycle Diaries, and is thus an inspired choice to tackle Kerouac’s best-known work.

With a great cast, including Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst, Salles’ film looks both utterly atmospheric and supremely shot.  I, for one, can’t wait.
