Kill Your Darlings

This film looks promising. Kill Your Darlings focuses on the early days of Allen Ginsberg and beat generation muse Lucien Carr. From everything I've seen so far, including the reviews, it seems to cover the period admirably, including the pair's meeting with Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs, and the formation of the legendary group of writers and poets. There is passion here, youthful exuberance and the story of one of the most notorious incidents of the group, one that has become the stuff of beat mythology, and which formed the basis for Kerouac and Burroughs' novel And The Hippos Were Boiled In Their Tanks.

The performances by Daniel Radcliffe (Ginsberg) and Dane DeHaan (Carr) have drawn positive reviews to date. There is also Facebook page devoted to the film.

And this is a taster
