Product Description
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles (Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries) and based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac, ON THE ROAD tells the timeless story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley, Control), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund, TRON: Legacy), a free-spirited, fearless, fast-talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart, The Twilight Saga). Traveling cross-country, Sal and Dean venture out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservatism engulfing them in search of the unknown, themselves, and the pursuit of it - the pure essence of experience. Seeking uncharted terrain and the last American frontier, the duo encounters an eclectic mix of men and women who each indelibly impact their journey toward self-discovery. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man), Tom Sturridge (Pirate Radio), Academy Award® Nominee Amy Adams (The Master), Alice Braga (Predators), and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), ON THE ROAD is a landmark odyssey from America s legendary Beat writer brought to vivid life by one of the most talented filmmakers of modern times.

    What a let down. This is some sort of re-cut version, not the theatrical version that I seen. Censored and re-cut. Hopefully there will be an unrated version released. I feel cheated. Not recommended.

    1Cut version - do NOT buy if you are expecting the full version
    By squall-leonhart-8
    The title basically says it all. I have seen at least two other reviews that mentioned this, but not enough. The version you buy here is NOT the full version, but CUT. If you want the full version, do NOT buy this and waste your money. Hopefully, an uncut version will eventually come out in the future, but until then, only buy this if you do not mind that it has been cut.

    2On The Road and into the Roadside Gutter.
    By Sammie
    Not having read the book, I'm not too sure if the auteurs of the Beat Generation lived their lives in similar fashion as Kerouac. Unfortunately, this film had no likable or interesting characters and their road trip adventures including their lives ended up like a brake-worn roadkill...contrary to those fans who have romanticized the values and esoterics of this Beat era into the film's failed attempts. Performance-wise any noteworthy scenes are few and lacks memorable sustainability. This includes Garret Hedlund's yawn-filled man-on-man action.
