Sundance trailer of the day: “Big Sur” [video]

"Big Sur" takes us to the waning days of the Beat Generation, and the final days of Jack Kerouac.

The movie – which debuts at the http://www.sundance.org/festival" target="_blank">2013 Sundance Film Festival – shows Kerouac (played by European star Jean-Marc Barr) looking back on a life damaged by booze and drugs, with his early success with "On the Road" a dim memory. He retreats to a fog-enshrouded cabin in the Big Sur woods, facing his demons.
