Set during the famed poet's formative years at Columbia University, 'Kill Your Darlings' centers around a murder investigation involving Ginsberg, his handsome classmate Lucien Carr, and fellow Beat author William Allen Ginsberg.
This previously untold story relays how a young Ginsberg fell prey to the awesome charms of juvenile delinquent Lucien Carr (Dane Dehaan) and how their relationship, along with William Burroughs (Ben Foster), initiated the foundation of the Beat Generation.
Accompanied by Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), the young writers’ attempt to disrupt the university’s status quo ultimately leads them on a malignant path of sex, drugs, self-discovery and even murder.
