Before Jack Kerouac would go on his American road trip and write his seminal work “On The Road”, and before famed poet Allen Ginsberg became synonymous for the best minds of a generation lost, the men who were to create a movement still talked about 60 years later had a beginning at Columbia University in 1943. That story is finally being told on film, in John Krokidas’ outstanding directorial debut “Kill Your Darlings”, playing as part of the 2013 London Film Festival. “Kill Your Darlings” begins at the end.

Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan help birth the Beat generation by committing a little murder in the first trailer for John Krokidas’ “Kill Your Darlings”, a biopic of burgeoning writers in the 1940s.

Hall’s David Kammerer, ultimately leading to the crime of passion that also draws in Jack Huston’s Jack Kerouac, Elizabeth Olsen’s Edie Parker and BenRead More
