The plot: The humdrum life of 1940s writer Sal Paradise is sent into a tailspin by the arrival of nomadic free spirit, Dean Moriarty, whose home is literally wherever he drops his trousers. This could be the bed of his beautiful girlfriend Camille, tormented poet Carlo Marx or incandescent 16-year-old Marylou. Sal's odyssey of self-discovery coincides with Dean's painful fall from grace.

what the others say


"A decent, well-cast and mounted adaptation that hits all the right notes but plays them in a respectful, muted monotone."

Time Out

"The rebel yell of On the Road now sounds muted and even a little embarrassing."

Total Film

"It may lose its way on occasions, but thanks to a committed cast and a script that captures the Kerouac vibe, Salles' adaptation never ends up on the road to nowhere."
