Though the new trailer for On the Road appeared in Clickables over the weekend, a movie with this many intriguing angles deserves a little more examination, wouldn't you say? Based on the classic Jack Kerouac novel, the movie stars Brit actor Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, Garret Hedlund as Dean Moriarty, and Kristen Stewart as Moriarty's teen bride Marylou. (There's also an extensive supporting cast that includes Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, and Elizabeth Moss, though not all of them get their due in this teaser.) Walter Salles directed, and certainly, the result is something a little more naturalistic than the famously never-shot iteration of Road that was to be helmed by Joel Schumacher and star Brad Pitt and Billy Crudup (imagine!), but is this book impossible to do justice to? Is Hedlund hiding a Beat charisma he wasn't permitted to use in stolid studio films like Tron Legacy? And is that what Kristen Stewart looks like when she's actually enjoying herself onscreen? Discuss!
