Click here for the Kill Your Darlings trailer, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall and Elizabeth Olsen.
A murder in 1944 draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.
The film is directed by John Krokidas and will have a limited theatrical release in North America after the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.
The Guardian’s Damon Wise said:
“…the real deal, a genuine attempt to source the beginning of America’s first true literary counterculture of the 20th century. Kill Your Darlings creates a true sense of energy and passion, for once eschewing the clacking of typewriter keys to show artists actually talking, devising, and ultimately daring each other to create and innovate. And though it begins as a murder-mystery, Kill Your Darlings may be best described as an intellectual moral maze, a story perfectly of its time and yet one that still resonates today.
