Jack Kerouac fans have something to look forward to in this year’s Cannes Film Festival – the film adaptation of the novel ‘On the Road’. Read more details about the film after the break.
Jack Kerouac was a novelist known for being a pioneer in the Beat Generation. One of his most popular novels is ‘On the Road’, which was written in 1951 and published 6 years after. The film adaptation of this novel started the same year as the book’s release. However, plans fell through and the idea was shelved. In 1979, Francis Ford Coppola bought the rights for the adaptation. Over the years, several attempts were made to move forward with the feature but like before, the project never materialized. Upon watching ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’, Coppola hired Brazilian filmmaker Walter Salles to go on board as the director for the film.
‘On the Road’ tells the story of Sal Paradise, a young writer who goes on an adventure with his friend Dean Moriarty. Majority of the film is based on Jack Kerouac’s life on the road while he travelled on a cross-country trip with his friends in the 1940’s. The movie is one of the contenders for the Palme d’Or at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. View the film’s trailer below.
