Director: John Krokidas
Writing credits: Austin Bunn, John Krokidas
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe (Allen Ginsburg), Dane DeHaan (Lucien Carr), Ben Foster (William Burroughs), Michael C. Hall (David Kammerer), Jack Huston (Jack Kerouac), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Naomi Ginsburg), Elizabeth Olsen (Edie Parker)
In his first role as an American, Radcliffe plays Allen Ginsberg, one of
the leading icons of the Beat Generation and a member of a literary
crew — including Lucien Carr, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs — that
ran around Manhattan’s Upper West Side, challenging the poetic form and
occasionally killing people.
“Kill Your Darlings” tells the true-life story of Ginsberg’s and
Carr’s meeting, their relationship — which, as many breathless Sundance
dispatches noted, becomes physical — and the murder of David Kammerer
(“Dexter” star Michael C. Hall).
While the story might seem like a
historical fiction spun out of the lives of several prominent literary
figures, the history behind “Kill Your Darlings” is very much based on
true events, circumstances that played a major role in many of the works
produced by the group in the years afterward. It’s worth reading up on — if you don’t mind spoilers.
and Dane DeHaan, who plays Lucien Carr, earned raves across the board
when “Kill Your Darlings” premiered in January at the Sundance Film
Festival. The film, director and co-writer John Krokidas’ feature debut,
is now set for a showing next week at the Toronto International Film
Festival, before opening to the general public on October 16.September 4, 2013 at 2:14 pm #110916

Dane DeHaan should definitely get a nomination. From what i’ve gathered he has a very flashy and baity character and totally steals the show. An Oscar nom would give a major boost to his career after not getting the part in Angelina Jolie’s new film. I doubt he gets any nominations at all though.September 4, 2013 at 9:43 pm #110918
The cast alone is enough to draw me to the theatres. Couple that with these characters being among my favorite writer/artists, and I’m in. Dane DeHaan, likely wont disappoint me. He hasnt so far.September 5, 2013 at 1:21 am #110919
I saw The Place Beyond The Pines, Chronicle and his episodes of In Treatment and I was completely blown away.September 5, 2013 at 8:43 am #110920
Went to a screening of this a week or two ago. I liked it a lot. Not sure it’s going to be a factor at the Oscars, but I could see Radcliffe, DeHaan singled out at the Independent Spirit Awards.September 5, 2013 at 1:38 pm #110921
I’m a fan of Dane DeHaan as well and was also impressed with his work in Chronicle and Place Beyond the PinesSeptember 5, 2013 at 5:25 pm #110922
I’m anticipation what Radcliffe will have to offer here.September 13, 2013 at 10:14 pm #110923
