Today, we’re happy to bring you an exclusive clip from writer-director Michael Polish’s Big Sur.  Adapted from Jack Kerouac’s novel by the same name, the story follows Kerouac (who goes by the alter ego of Jack Duluoz and is played by Jean-Marc Barr) as he journeys to poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s cabin in the small coastal California town to escape the pressure of his own success.  This exclusive clip gives a nice example of Kerouac’s inner demons along with an introduction to the film’s look and tone.

Also starring Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas, Radha Mitchell, Anthony Edwards and Stana Katic, Big Sur opens November 1st.  Hit the jump to watch the clip.

Check out our exclusive clip from writer-director Michael Polish’s Big Sur below, followed by the film’s synopsis and poster:

Synopsis:

An adaptation of American literary icon Jack Kerouac’s novel of the same name, BIG SUR focuses on a moment in Kerouac’s life when, overwhelmed by the success of his opus On the Road and struggling to battle inner demons, heseeks respite in three brief sojourns to a cabin in the small, coastal California town of Big Sur. Michael Polish’s film is at once a poetic meditation and a love-letter to the work of an author who defined the Beat Generation.
