Cinematique Presents: "Kill Your Darlings"

Official Movie Poster

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) gives a fearless performance as young Allen Ginsberg in this mesmerizing true story of friendship, the early days of the Beat Generation and a passion that ends in murder. This biopic set during the famed beat poet's years at Columbia University centers on a murder investigation involving Ginsberg, his handsome classmate Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan), and fellow Beat author William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster).

The year is 1944. Alongside Carr, Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), Ginsberg casts conformity to the wind, forming the foundation of the Beat movement. When someone dies mysteriously, police arrest Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr as suspects.      (Rated R, 1hr, 40min)
