Kristen Stewart looked fetching tonight as she joined her On The Road co-creatives — director Walter Salles, costars Garrett Hedlund and Amy Adams, producer Rebecca Yeldham — in front of an AFI Fest audience before the screening (which didn’t begin until 8:40 pm) at the Chinese. And once again her body language suggested that she hated being there and was vaguely ashamed of being a famous actress. She always gives off that vibe. Lemme outta here.
On The Road costars Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and Amy Adams — Saturday, 11.3, 8:35 pm in front of crowd at Chinese.
On The Road “is masterful and rich and lusty, meditative and sensual and adventurous and lamenting all at once,” I wrote on 5.23 12 from Cannes. “It has Bernardo Bertolucci‘s ‘nostalgia for the present’ except the present is 1949 to 1951 — it feels completely alive in that time. No hazy gauze, no bop nostalgia. Beautifully shot and cut, excitingly performed and deeply felt.
“It’s much, much better than I thought it would be given the long shoot and…I forget how long it’s been in post but it feels like ages. It’s so full of life and serene and mirthful in so many different ways. I was stirred and delighted and never less than fully engrossed as I watched it, and it’s great to finally run into a film that really hits it, and then hits it again and again.”
