"Bless me father, for I will sin."
Here's a great new trailer for the Francis Ford Coppola-produced period coming of age film On The Road, which was directed by Walter Salles. I didn't really have any interest in seeing this movie until this trailer came along and showed me that it actually looks like a good film.
The movie is based on the book written by Jack Kerouac, and it has a solid cast actors that includes Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), Sam Riley (13), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Amy Adams (The Fighter), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man), Viggo Mortenson (LOTR) and more.
Here's the Synopsis:
After his father's death in the late 1940s, 24-year-old aspiring writer Sal Paradise meets 20-year-old ex-jailbird Dan Moriarty and his beautiful wife Marylou in New York. Dan is extremely charming and has a flexible moral code, and is as fascinated by Sal's obsession with writing as Sal is by the unfettered freedom of his lifestyle. The two men spend intense nights of drinking, dreaming of another world, and forming a friendship that will take them on a trip across America. After staying at Bull Lees place in Louisiana, Sal, Dean, and Marylou continue traveling - naked and utterly enjoying themselves.
The movie is set to get a limited release on December 21st in LA and NY. It will then expand to the rest of the country in January. There was something off about the previous trailers, but for some reason this one just hit me.
