The novel, On The Road, written by the American writer Jack Kerouac, was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. The novel is slated to be a benchmark and a defining work of the postwar Beat Generation that was inspired by jazz, poetry, and drug experiences.
And now there is a movie on the same novel.
After creating a buzz at the Cannes Film Festival this May, the first international trailer for On the Road has been released.
The film stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen and Alice Braga.
Kristen Stewart in On The Road.
But sadly, it does not have nearly as much Kristen Stewart as one might expect, especially so because of her recent relationship fiasco with ex-beau Robert Pattinson.
Kristen Stewart stars as Marylou, the 16-year old, very young wife of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) in Walter Salles' highly anticipated adaptation of Jack Kerouac's avant garde novel.
The film has been in production stage for years. It features a different side to Stewart. She is shown to be carefree and libertine.
Kristen Stewart has embarked on this role very differenty from all her previous work.
She is naked multiple times in On the Road, and her sexually uninhibited character engages in a threesome and masturbation openly. (A glimpse of this scene can be spotted in the trailer.)
"I wanted to do it" Stewart said at Cannes. "I love pushing, I love scaring myself."
Kristen's look is also distinct in the movie. She can be seen as a casual, unkempt teenage maiden who loves adventure.
Stewart has had a turbulent couple of weeks. She was caught kissing director Rupert Sanders and acknowledged to cheating on her long-time boyfriend, Robert Pattinson.
