On the Roads’ directed by Walter Salles featuring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Alice Braga, Elisabeth Moss, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen in lead roles will open in New York on December 21st 2012. The film is based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac.

The film tells the provocative story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited, fearless, fast talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart). 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.

On the Road was screened on May 23 at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. A shorter version of the film, running 124 minutes, was shown on September 6, 2012 at the Toronto International Film Festival. Walter Salles has got Golden Palm award for best direction at the Cannes film festival in 2012.
