Competition: Win ‘On the Road’ on Blu-ray *closed*

Set in the late 1940s and based on the novel of the same name by Beat Generation icon Jack Kerouac, Walter Salles’ On the Road (2012) is the story of young writer Sal Paradise’s journey – a journey back and forth across America in search of freedom, self-expression, and self-discovery. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Salles’ booze-soaked road movie, we have THREE Blu-ray copies of the film to give away to our freethinking readers, courtesy of the fine folk at UK distributor Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Feeling lost after his father’s death, Sal (Sam Riley) meets the free-spirited Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and impulsively joins him on a cross-country drive. With a criminal past and a hankering for independence, Dean possesses complete disregard for the law, social niceties and the feelings of the women in his life. Thus, the friends make several eventful trips across the country together. But even as they revel in their unique relationship and the liberty of travelling, the inevitability of change will eventually alter Sal and Dean’s friendship forever.
