First Official Look At Daniel Radcliffe In ‘Kill Your Darlings’

KillYourDarlings 600x350

If playing the world’s famous boy wizard was not enough, he will now be portraying one of the world’s most famous poets too! Sundance have posted the first official image of Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg in new indie drama KILL YOUR DARLINGS.

In this first official image, we see Radcliffe alongside Ben Foster (who plays William Burroughs), Dane DeHaan (who plays Lucien Carr) and Jack Huston (who plays Jack Kerouac).

Sundance have also released the official 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.

Beat films seem to be the trend in the Indie circuit over the last couple of years, with films like HOWL and ON THE ROAD getting a release. However, KILL YOUR DARLINGS looks to be the most exciting yet!
