A new trailer and images for the Jack Kerouac adaptation Big Sur have made their way online.  Directed by Michael Polish, the film takes place after the success of Kerouac’s On the Road and chronicles the author’s struggle with alcoholism and depression in the early 1960s.  I caught the film at Sundance earlier this year and was not a huge fan, but Jean-Marc Barr does a fine job of capturing the sad genius of Kerouac onscreen.  This trailer is a pretty good indication of the film’s overall feel and tone, so if you take a liking to it then chances are you’ll enjoy the feature.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the new images.  The film also stars Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas, Anthony Edwards, Radha Mitchell, and Patrick Fischler.  Check out my interviews with Barr, Bosworth, and Lucas & Mitchell from Sundance.  Big Sur opens on November 1st.

Here’s the synopsis for Big Sur:

Unable to cope with a suddenly demanding public and battling advanced alcoholism, Jack Kerouac seeks respite in three brief sojourns to a cabin in Big Sur, which reveal his mental and physical deterioration.
