Actress Alice Braga plays a journalist who is researching the veracity of exorcisms in the thriller The Rite. However, this writer was much more interested in her role in the recently wrapped picture On The Road.Based on the classic beat generation novel from Jack Kerouac, the Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) directed picture stars Country Strong actor Garrett Hedlund as the restless traveling spirit, Dean Moriarty. “It was a very challenging thing because (producers) have been trying to make a film from this book for a long time,” said Braga.  “I was very familiar with it because I had read the book when I was a teenager and my father loves Kerouac.  So it was very interesting to get the chance to work with Walter Salles who does a lot of road films and especially to be part of American literature.”  Click on the media bar and listen to Braga elaborate on her On The Road journey (she mentions On The Road producer Francis Ford Coppola and The Rite co-star Colin O’Donoghue in the clip).
