Chris Kelly’s Modern Cinema Festival

Kill Your Darlings
  • October 4, 2013 - 8:15pm

Casting off his Harry Potter robes, Daniel Radcliffe delivers a revelatory performance as poet Allen Ginsberg, who as a Columbia University student in the mid-1940s meets William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and soon finds himself implicated in a shocking murder. An incisive portrait of literary ambition, sexual awakening, and emotional violence, Kill Your Darlings—the directorial debut of the gifted John Krokidas—reveals to us the giants of the Beat Generation as never before.
