Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan star in first clip from Kill Your Darlings: watch now

Kill Your Darlings has released a first clip online, in which Daniel Radcliffe’s Allen Ginsberg meets Dane DeHaan’s Lucien Carr for the very first time.

The new film charts the young life of Beat poet Ginsberg, focusing particularly upon its transformation by the acquaintance of Carr when the two were both attending Colombia University.

Introduced to the likes of Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs, Ginsberg’s life is filled with excitement, until the sudden death of an admirer of Carr’s lands his three new friends in court on a murder charge…

Take a look at the new clip, below…

DeHaan certainly looks set to steal the show here, playing Carr with a heady combination of flamboyance and disdain. That poor old librarian doesn’t have a hope of reining him in…

Directed by John Krokidas and co-starring Ben Foster, Jack Huston, Elizabeth Olsen and Michael C. Hall, Kill Your Darlings will open in the UK on 8 November 2013.
