Watch the trailer for Big Sur, starring Jean-Marc Barr, Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas, Anthony Edwards, Stana Katic and Radha Mitchell. An adaptation of American literary icon Jack Kerouac’s novel of the same name, Big Sur focuses on a moment in Kerouac’s life when, overwhelmed by the success of his opus On the Road and struggling to battle inner demons, he seeks respite in three brief sojourns to a cabin in the small, coastal California town of Big Sur. Michael Polish’s film is at once a poetic meditation and a love-letter to the work of an author who defined the Beat Generation. »
Big Sur has released a new trailer.
The movie is based on Kerouac's autobiographical book, which centres around his struggles with success following the release of On the Road and getting old.
Big Sur debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It will open in the Us on November 1. A UK date has not been announced. »
Hot on the heels of the trailer for Kill Your Darlings comes another film about the beat generation – but it’s no tale of fresh faces in a new movement, nor does it take place anywhere near ivy-covered halls. Michael Polish‘s Big Sur is the adaptation of the Jack Kerouac novel that chronicles his life long after the young and wreckless On the Road days have settled in the past. But that doesn’t mean that Kerouac (Jean-Marc Barr) has any less of an interesting life now that he’s older, wiser, more accomplished – he’s just restless and looking for escape. So he heads out to Big Sur in search of both peace and company, and certainly finds it in friend Neal Cassady’s (Josh Lucas) mistress (Kate Bosworth). With a location like Big Sur, it’s hard for your trailer not to be a stunner. However, our own Allison Loring felt that the prettiness »

A new trailer and images for the Jack Kerouac adaptation Big Sur have made their way online. Directed by Michael Polish, the film takes place after the success of Kerouac’s On the Road and chronicles the author’s struggle with alcoholism and depression in the early 1960s. I caught the film at Sundance earlier this year and was not a huge fan, but Jean-Marc Barr does a fine job of capturing the sad genius of Kerouac onscreen. This trailer is a pretty good indication of the film’s overall feel and tone, so if you take a liking to it then chances are you’ll enjoy the feature. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the new images. The film also stars Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas, Anthony Edwards, Radha Mitchell, and Patrick Fischler.
