Blockbuster, Oscar bait or something else?
Continuing the theme of novel adaptations this holiday season, Walter Salles takes on Jack Kerouac for the Francis Ford Coppola-produced "On the Road." The film version of the story, based on Kerouac's experiences in the 1940s, stars Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart as the couple who rock the world of Sam Riley's Sal Paradise. This is one of those roles wherein Stewart sets about to prove she's more than a tween-inspiring vampire, as she strips down for a threesome with Hedlund and Riley. Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi and Viggo Mortensen also make notable appearances.
