Michael Polish directs this adaptation of Big Sur which stars Jean-Marc Barr as Kerouac, Josh Lucas as Neal Cassidy, and Kate Bosworth as Billie. The trailer makes this look very nice indeed. With On The Road and now this heading our way it looks like Kerouac may be getting some new fans. Now get out there and read his books.
Unable to cope with a suddenly demanding public and battling advanced alcoholism, Jack Kerouac seeks respite in three brief sojourns to a cabin in Big Sur, which reveal his mental and physical deterioration.
The film also stars Radha Mitchell, Anthony Edwards, and Henry Thomas.
