A group of new photos and new clip has surfaced for John Krokidas' biographical drama Kill Your Darlings, which is currently screening at The Venice Film Festival. Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan and Ben Foster star in the film, which centers on Allen Ginsberg and members of the Beat Generation. Check out the clip and photos then read on for the full synopsis.
While he is attending Columbia University in 1944, the young Allen Ginsberg's life is turned upside down when he sets eyes on Lucien Carr, an impossibly cool and boyishly handsome classmate. Carr opens Ginsberg up to a bohemian world and introduces him to William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Repelled by rules and conformity in both life and literature, the four agree to tear down tradition and make something new, ultimately formulating the tenets of and giving birth to what became the Beat movement. On the outside, looking in, is David Kammerer, a man in his thirties desperately in love with Carr. When Kammerer is found dead, and Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr are arrested in conjunction with the murder, the nascent artists' lives change forever.
Kill Your Darlings was released October 16th, 2013 and stars Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston, Ben Foster, David Cross, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Elizabeth Olsen. The film is directed by John Krokidas.
