It was date night for Kate Bosworth (in Christopher Kane) and husband Michael Polish, who gathered with the rest of the Big Sur cast on the rooftop of Hotel Chantelle to celebrate the film’s New York City premiere. Big Sur follows the story of beat poet Jack Kerouac, who takes refuge in California’s rugged region of the same name following his rise to fame after publishing On the Road. Aside from their shared wanderlust and expertise at traversing the Bay Area’s surroundings, Bosworth confessed to spotting a few more similarities between Polish and Kerouac. “They’re both brilliant American artists, and Michael is a great writer,” she told InStyle.com. “I think Jack would be very proud of this film. I can say that with confidence because I think there’s something that he and Michael both know of each other — capturing that lonesome kind of feeling.” Polish humbly accepted her loving praises. “I try to do what he did!” he said. “I can only take a movie I had some sort of relation to, and he was a guy on an artist’s journey. I tried to stay as true as I could to the words.” This also marks the first time Bosworth has starred in one of her husband’s films; she is set to appear in Polish’s upcoming project Unconscious, which is currently in post-production.
