UK Premiere of On the Road

Will the 55 years it has taken On the Road to make it from the pages of Jack Kerouac’s book to the big screen have been worth the wait? Find out at the UK Premiere on Thursday 16 August at Somerset House.

Kerouac’s spontaneous prose style perhaps doesn’t make it the easiest of novels to transition to film, but with Walter Salles as director, it seems in good hands - he has previous road movie experience in his version of The Motorcycle Diaries. The film stars, Sam Riley as Sal Paradise and Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty (the Kerouac and Neal Cassady characters) plus a host of other easy-on-the-eye actors as the Beat Generation players.

It is showing as part of the Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House with other noteworthy films with a retro flavour in the programme include a double bill of Boogie Nights Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, Pretty in Pink and a classic slice of Hitchcock with The Birds. Tickets cost £22.50 plus booking fee and are available to buy from Friday 18 May or two days earlier with you a subscriber to the Somerset House mailing list.
