On The Road
Jack Kerouac’s classic novel On the Road has been brought to the big screen by director Walter Salles.
The book, which was published in 1957, has long since been regarded as a classic of American literature and was a mainstay of the ‘beat’ counterculture in the 1950s and 60s. The film details a period in the life of young writer Sal Paradise who has his world shaken by the arrival of free-spirited Dean Moriarty and his girl Marylou. As they travel across the America they encounter a mix of people who each impact their journey indelibly. Actors Garret Hedlund, Kirsten Stewart and Sam Riley star are the three friends whose journey will ultimately change American writing for ever. The film screens on Thursday, March 21st at 8pm. Admission is E7.
