On the Road

On the Road(2012)

6/10. On the Road is a joyless, meaningless adaptation of the wonderful and inspirational novel that became a bible for the Beat generation of the 50's and 60's. Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty is one of the few saving graces of one of the years most disappointing films. Hedlund's breakout performance is so good that I really believe he should be nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the end of the year. Mediocre film based on a wonderful novel. See the film solely for Hedlund's performance.
