This week the Toronto International Film Festival is screening more than 250 films and a few of them have us ready to hit the road.

Remember reading Jack Kerouac's On The Road in High School and wishing you could just get into the car and drive across the country? Well now you can take that trip (at least vicariously) with Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, and Kirsten Dunst. The first big screen adaptation of Kerouac's classic premiered Thursday at TIFF and is already creating wanderlust among fans.

Spring Breakers, which critics are calling "Beach Blanket Bingo on acid," also had a special screening at TIFF last week with its stars, Selena Gomez and James Franco. The movie might not be everyone's bag, but it will inspire the collegiate set to start booking hotels for spring break 2013. The movie was even filmed in one of St. Petersburg, Florida's real-life spring break hot spots, The Coral Reef Beach Resort.

Critics might be confused about Spring Breakers, but they seem to agree Anna Karenina is the best movie of the fest so far. Keira Knightley stars in the latest adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's classic which was filmed at the Ham House in Surrey. And, we have a feeling that once the movie hits theaters, Ham House is going to be the second most popular castle in the U.K.

The Toronto International Film Festival runs through September 16, visit tiff.net for more information.
