Win an INTERRAIL Europe train pass for two and 10 other stunning prizes, including our brandnew Maps camera edition! On the 4th of October ON THE ROAD, the film adaptation of the novel by Jack Kerouac will be released in Germany and we would like to see your best shots of moments you've experienced together with your friends "on the road".
Just after his father’s death, Sal Paradise (SAM RILEY), an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty (GARRETT HEDLUND), a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou (KRISTEN STEWART). Sal and Dean bond instantly. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.
Based on the successful novel “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac in the 1950s, the story tells about an unusual friendship of two young men and their adventurous road trip across the United States..
Walter Salles directed a wonderful road movie with some of the best current young actors in Hollywood – Sam Riley (Control), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Kirsten Stewart (The Twilight Saga), Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia) and Newcomer Tom Sturridge (Radio Rock Revolution).
ON THE ROAD is about searching for luck, freedom, love and the ultimate party — things you mostly share with friends!
