kerouac-big-sur

The trailer itself is a movie. I am very eagerly anticipating the release of the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s Big Sur, especially after the disappointment of On the Road.

Written and directed by Michael Polish, the film stars his fiancĂ©e Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas and Balthazar Getty. Set to premiere in a matter of days at Sundance, I wonder if it’ll be any good?

 

I hold great hopes for this film:

* one of the greatest twentieth century American novels.

* directed by Motorcycle’s Diaries’ Walter Salles.

* starring Garrett Hedlund, rising star of Tron: Legacy and a favourite since Four Brothers

* VIGGO MORTENSEN

(I am choosing to ignore the wooden one, aka Kristen Stewart)
