Opening on Friday, November 8! A true story of friendship, love and murder, KILL YOUR DARLINGS recounts the pivotal year that changed Allen Ginsberg’s life forever and provided the spark for him to start his creative revolution

For dutiful son Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Columbia University is Mecca—a portal to art, intellect, culture, and freedom—everything hometown Patterson, New Jersey is not. When Allen is accepted into Columbia, his father, a working-class poet, urges him to leave his emotionally ill mother behind and head to New York to go pursue his own creative dreams. Once there, he meets people who will forever alter his life as a 1944 murder draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs
