With Sundance debut “Kill Your Darlings” now screening out of competition at the Venice Film Festival, a new clip and images from this 1944-set beat generation drama have emerged. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as poet maudit Allen Ginsberg who, as shown here, meets Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) at Columbia and is drawn into a murder mystery involving the likes of Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs.
The directorial debut of John Krokidas, the film costars Elizabeth Olsen, Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, Jennifer Jason Leigh and David Cross. Early reviews from Sundance were strong.
In this short but charming clip below, Ginsberg first sets his eyes on Carr, who is reading then-salacious passages from American writer Henry Miller. The teaser is included below as well. The film plays TIFF this month before hitting theaters October 18 via Sony Pictures Classics.
