On the Road (2012) on iTunes

Last year’s hit Beat movie, On the Road, based upon the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac, is now available on iTunes. Starring Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty and Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, the movie also features Kristin Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, and Steve Buscemi. It’s directed by Walter Salles, who previously directed The Motorcycle Diaries. The movie has received mixed reviews and mixed reactions from Beat fans, with the consensus seemingly that the film is enjoyable but is certainly not a classic like the book upon which it’s based.
