Walter Salles' "On the Road" opens at Coral Gables Art Cinema

From April 5 through 12, 2013.

The Coral Gables Art Cinema presents the exclusive Miami first run engagement of “On The Road”, in 2K Digital Cinema Projection. Based on Jack Kerouac’s classic American cult Beat-era novel of the same name, it is brought to the screen by the great director Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries). The film follows an aspiring New York writer and his friendship with a devastatingly charming ex-con from the Midwest in the 1950s, as the two embark on a series of jazz-inflected road trips that take them across the length and breadth of the United States.

On the Road is a portrait of a generation not afraid of breaking rules in their search for meaning. Captured in stunning and evocative wide-screen cinematography, the film is both a pean to the era it evokes as well as America itself, in all its beauty and gritty reality, and based on the real-life characters of Keorouac, Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg and others. On the Road’s powerhouse cast includes Kristen Stewart, in a mold-breaking role; Garrett Hedlund; Sam Riley; Amy Adams; Viggo Mortensen; and Kirsten Dunst. The Los Angeles Times raves, “Salles has lovingly crafted a poetic, sensitive, achingly romantic version of the Kerouac book that captures the evanescence of its characters’ existence and the purity of their rebellious hunger for the essence of life.”
