    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.

    Radcliffe
    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.

    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.

    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.

    I saw The Place Beyond The Pines, Chronicle and his episodes of In Treatment and I was completely blown away.

    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.

    I’m a fan of Dane DeHaan as well and was also impressed with his work in Chronicle and Place Beyond the Pines

    I’m anticipation what Radcliffe will have to offer here.
