Collider recently shared the first image of Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHann, Jack Houston, and Ben Foster in their film Kill Your Darlings. Directed and co-written by John Krokidas, Kill Your Darlings is a drama about the origins of the Beat movement. The cast also includes actors Michael C. Hall, Elizabeth Olsen, David Cross, Kyra Sedgwick, and David Rasche.
The film is set to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which runs from January 17 until January 27. Take a look at the first official image and read the official film synopsis below:
“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 andliterature, 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.
Daniel Radcliffe fearlessly takes on the role of the young Ginsberg on a journey of discovery—to find his sexuality and his voice as a writer. Cowriter/director John Krokidas takes on this less-explored early chapter of the Beats and captures the period with visual flair, kinetic energy, and imagination. Kill Your Darlings is the riveting true story of a crime, a friendship, and the nexus that spawned a cultural movement.”
