In 1944, young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe) has a rival for the affections of his charismatic classmate, Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan). When the man is found dead, Carr, William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac are arrested for murder.
The stars of Harry Potter are in the process of proving that they're all grown up: Emma Watson got involved in a burglary ring, Rupert Grint joined a punk band and started hanging out in seedy New York clubs, and now Daniel Radcliffe is involved in a real-life murder mystery. Luckily, it's just the characters these former child stars play who lead chaotic and tumultuous lives.
In the new flick Kill Your Darlings, Daniel Radcliffe plays poet Allen Ginsburg alongside Jack Huston's Jack Kerouac and Ben Foster's William S. Burroughs. Unlike some other flicks about the Beat Generation's most notable writers, this one doesn't seem to meander around following self-indulgent kids who vacillate between exuberance and existential angst; instead it examines the true story of the murder of David Kammerer. The details of the mystery will unfold when the movie is released in theaters October 18th.
