First Trailer for Sundance Selected Jack Kerouac Adaptation 'Big Sur'
Starting on January 17th, we'll be sitting in the mountains of Park City, Utah, for the Sundance Film Festival, ready to start the buzz on the latest (and hopefully greatest) independent movies that 2013 has to offer. And with the festival so close, the hype for some of the films is already kicking off. This time it's the first trailer for Big Sur, an adaptation of yet another Jack Kerouac book (Kill Your Darlings with Daniel Radcliffe will also be at Sundance). Jean-Marc Barr plays Kerouac this time with Kate Bosworth and Josh Lucas also starring in this story of the writer's struggle with alcoholism and a relationship with his best friend's mistress. This looks like a gorgeous film that Kerouac fans might really enjoy. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Michael Polish's Sundance selected Big Sur (via Trailer Addict):
Michael Polish (The Astronaut Farmer, Twin Falls Idaho) directs Big Sur from a script he wrote himself based on Jack Kerouac's famed book of the same name. The story focuses on a moment in the writers’s life when, overwhelmed by the success of his opus On the Road and struggling with alcoholism, he retreats to his publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s cabin in the small, coastal California town of Big Sur, which eventually inspires his 1962 novel. Kerouac’s time begins with quiet moments of solitude and communing with nature. But, struck by loneliness, he heads to San Francisco, where he resumes drinking and gets pushed into a relationship with his best friend Neal Cassady’s mistress, Billie. Big Sur premieres at Sundance this month.
