So much of what works for me about On the Road lies in the prose, but if this trailer is any indication, the movie might actually succeed at capturing what it feels like to be young and having a set of experiences you’re convinced no one else has possibly had before and that no one will have in the future, because you are that unique:

It actually makes me wish someone would do A Moveable Feast, which has that same sense of impassioned naivete and openness to the world, that promise that “we’ll never love anyone else but each other,” “no. Never.” And I’m excited for HBO’s upcoming Hemingway & Gellhorn which is the experience to those stories’ innocence:
I’m not sure it’ll be good or not, but I do appreciate that it’s from Gellhorn’s perspective. She didn’t want to be a footnote in his life while they were both alive, and it’s nice to see she’s not here.
