Here’s your chance to get a taste of the red carpet treatment at one of 10 exclusive preview screenings of On the Road (Cert 15), a new film adaptation of the classic Jack Kerouac novel, starring Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty and Kristen Stewart as Marylou. The original book became a definitive cult classic, and is still regularly cited as one of the most important pieces of 20th-century fiction. Its story is based on Kerouac’s travels across the United States in the late Forties, accompanied by friends Neal Cassady, William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg – who collectively were regarded as pioneers of what became known as the Beat Generation. Directed by Walter Salles, the long-awaited film was nominated in 2012 at both the Cannes Film Festival and the Sydney Film Festival.
The preview screenings take place in cinemas across the UK on October 8. For more information, visit www.ontheroadmovie.co.uk
