Kill Your Darlings has had a limited release in the US, but it doesn’t reach UK cinemas until December 6th. Now the movie’s British distributor, The Works, has released a new poster for the movie, featuring Daniel Radcliffe & Dane DeHaan.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
As you probably know by now, Radcliffe plays the gay Ginsberg, and there’s been much talk about the sex scene he gets involved with. Brits will be able to check it out in a few weeks time.
