MOVIES: Special Screenings — Off the road with Jack Kerouac

  Most people who know Beat-era writer Jack Kerouac know "On the Road."
  But a new movie screening Tuesday night focuses on what happened to Kerouac after that chronicle of his ’50s cross-country odyssey.
  "One Fast Move or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur" will be shown at 7:30 p.m. at Rave Town Square; director Curt Worden and producers Jim Sampas and Gloria Bailen are expected to attend.
  The movie focuses on Kerouac’s unraveling following the sudden fame "On the Road" brought him, taking audiences to his cabin in the Big Sur woods — and his Beat haunts of San Francisco and New York City. It unfolds through Kerouac’s prose (spoken in voice-over by "The Sopranos’ " John Ventimiglia), first-hand recollections of Kerouac contemporaries and comments from those influenced by Kerouac, including poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, playwright and actor Sam Shepard and singers Tom Waits and Patti Smith.
  Son Volt’s Jay Farrar and Death Cab for Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard provide original music.
