Photo Coverage: Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst on the Red Carpet for ON THE ROAD at TIFF
On the Road is a film adaptation of the Jack Kerouac cult classic novel of the same name, directed by Walter Salles and starring Sam Riley as Sal Paradise and Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty. The story is based on the years Kerouac spent travelling the United States in the 1940s with his friend Neal Cassady and several other figures who would go on to fame in their own right, including William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg. The film just played the Toronto International Film Festival, and you can check out photos from the premiere below!
Following the death of his father, struggling young writer Sal Paradise embarks upon a journey across America with his friend and hero, Dean Moriarty, traveler and mystic, the living epitome of beat.
