On the Road Begins Theatrical Journey in New York City

The upcoming IFC Films adventure drama ‘On the Road’ is set to be released in select New York City theaters, including the IFC Center and Lincoln Plaza Cinema, on December 21. The independent film, which was directed by Walter Salles, stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Elisabeth Moss and Viggo Mortensen.

Based on the 1957 novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac, ‘On the Road’ details the provocative story of Sal Paradise (played by Riley), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (portrayed by Hedlund). Dean is a free-spirited, fearless, fast-talking Westerner who’s traveling with his girl, Marylou (played by Stewart).

Sal joins Dean on a cross-country journey, where they go out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservation engulfing them. They search for the unknown and the pure essence of experience.
