On The Road Synopsis

Jack Kerouac's classic book adapted for the screen charting the adventures of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty across 1950's America. Jack Kerouac's mythical book, ON THE ROAD, beloved my millions of readers for over 50 years, has finally been adapted for the screen. This quintessential road movie and vibrant song of freedom will be directed by Walter Salles (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES). Bringing together a fine cast and crew the Brazilian filmmaker will direct a truly modern film, while remaining faithful to the original work and highlighting what was always a timeless work of art.

After his father dies, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a young and dangerously seductive ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined not to get trapped in a narrow life, the two friend's burn bridges and hit the road: thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, others and themselves.
