Kill Your Darlings

Kill Your Darlings

Set in the 1940’s during the early days of the literary revolution, Kill Your Darlings is a true crime thriller based on the previously untold story of a murder that implicated the men who went on to become the great poets of the Beat Generation; Allen Ginsberg, Lucien Carr, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.

Based on actual events and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Kill Your Darlings tells how these young men first meet at Columbia University in 1944. A story of friendship, obsession, jealousy and genius, their self-proclaimed brilliance is stained by the brutal murder of David Kammerer, which both consecrated and fractured their early fellowship.

Directed by John Krokidas and starring Daniel Radcliffe, Dane HeHaan, Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston, Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kyra Sedgwick, Kill Your Darlings is due to hit UK screens on 6th December 2013.
