Young writer Sal Paradise has his life shaken by the arrival of free-spirited Dean Moriarty and his girl, Marylou. As they travel across the country, they encounter a mix of people who each impact their journey indelibly.
Because Amy Adams had just become a mother when shooting began and she's playing a drug addict on the movie, she decided to not use much make-up and incorporate her natural tiredness due to having a baby to the role.
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles...
In the opening scenes narrator Sal(Jack Kerouac) says that Dean has married sixteen year old Mary Lou. In the second half of the film Mary Lou tiring of the constant travel says she has a fiance in the military and that she wants a baby. If she's married to Dean how does she have a fiance back home.
