On The Road - trailer

Following the posting of the piece on The Original Scroll yesterday, this is the trailer for the film, which is released later this year.  Sam Riley plays Sal ParadiseJack Kerouac, Garrett Hedlund - Dean Moriarty/Neal Cassidy and Kristen Stewart - Marylou/Luanne Henderson.

It looks like most of the important quotes are in there, including the opening line and the "the only people for me are the mad ones....".  It also seems to capture the mood well, in particular that specific era in jazz history, "somewhere between its Charlie Parker Ornithology period and another period that began with Miles Davis".

Only a full viewing will prove whether Kerouac's most famous novel has survived its transition to film.  It is out in September.
