Making its world premiere last week at the Cannes Film Festival, the much anticipated big screen adaptation of the classic JACK KEROUAC novel ON THE ROAD was met with solid critical response. Directed by WALTER SALLES from a script by JOSE RIVERA, the cast includes GARRETT HEDLUND, KRISTEN STEWART, AMY ADAMS, STEVE BUSCEMI, KIRSTEN DUNST, ELISABETH MOSS and VIGGO MORTENSEN. First published in book form in 1957, KEROUAC’S novel was immediately embraced by post-war youth and considered to be one of just a few voices of “the beat generation”.
Facing entertainment reporters at a festival press conference, STEWART responded to questions regarding her much publicized nudity and graphic sex scene in the film. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
