"Stewart has racked up quite a collection of independent films, such as a scene stealing cameo in Sean Penn’s superb Into the Wild, as Meg Ryan’s feisty daughter In the Land of Women and as the troubled femme fatale in Greg Mottola’s Superbad follow up Adventureland.Stewart will play Dean Moriarty’s wife Mary Lou, described by Kerouac as a “beautiful little sharp chick,” in his transparently autobiographical account of spontaneous road trips that became the iconic testament to the Beat Generation.
Another in her indie line up sees Stewart star with James Gandolfini in Welcome to the Rileys. The film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and Stewart describes her character Mallory as, “an incredibly vivacious, seemingly really solid girl, but she was a 16-year-old runaway, stripper, prostitute who was absolutely so completely corroded and broken. She’s like a broken toy; it’s fun, but it doesn’t really work right". Source: www.alicetynan.com

On The Road is a largely autobiographical work that was based on the spontaneous road trips of Kerouac and his friends across the 1950s America. When the book was originally released, The New York Times hailed it as “the most beautifully executed, the clearest and most important utterance” of Kerouac’s generation" Source: www.glamourvanity.com
