The first trailer for the highly anticipated Kill Your Darlings, which already premiered to rave reviews at Sundance and is getting ready to hit the Toronto International Film Festival next week. Watch the trailer below.
The trailer plays up the enigmatic attractiveness of the whole group, focusing mainly on Daniel Radcliffe‘s Allen Ginsberg, the wide-eyed newbie. But about halfway through the trailer everything slows down and becomes confusingly dreamlike as their world turns violent, with glimpses of Kammerer’s obsession with Carr and his eventual death.
The official synopsis for the film…
In this dynamic portrait of the early days of the Beat Generation, a young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe) and William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) become embroiled in the notorious 1944 murder of Burroughs’ childhood friend David Kammerer by the object of his affection, the Rimbaudian Beat muse Lucien Carr.
