Kerouac fans are a fiercely loyal bunch so this movie adaptation directed by Walter Salles will either have them first in line or at home throwing lit cigarettes at their laptop screens. Either way it’s happening, in fact its happened and will be shown for the very first time to the great and good of the glamorous Cannes Film Festival 2012. Carrying an impressive cast list; Sam Riley (Closer), Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Tom Sturridge, Viggo Mortensen and Amy Adams – the trailer suggests this film will at the very least be something nice to look at. Press Play for more.
