The road trip as a rite of passage. Sean Penn tells us about his new movie, Into the Wild, a true story about a young man who leaves everything behind to live alone in the Alaskan wilderness. And we celebrate the 50th anniversary of On the Road. A couple of newlyweds struggle over whether it’s just a boy book - and the cellist Erik Friedlander improvises music to a passage from the book.
