On the Road

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: On the road :To Nowhere is a more appropriate title for this road picture that wanders aimlessly from scene to scene without much purpose. The film stars Sam Riley as Sal Paradise. He meets Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and his young wife Marylou (Kristen Stewart).
