A diffident young man with extraordinary gifts enters a hallowed school, encounters smooth-talking devils and deadly skullduggery, and leads a revolutionary upheaval. The thematic links between Daniel Radcliffe’s iconic role as a lightning-scarred boy wizard and his new performance as college-bound Allen Ginsberg are plentiful. This time he’s out not to defeat Lord Voldemort but to unseat America’s best-known poet of the 1940s, that purveyor of genial tripe Ogden Nash, and all the stale mediocrity that he represents. The path leads through sex, drugs, poetry and lethal violence.

About the Film:

Ends on Thursday Dec 5th
Daniel Radcliffe stars as Beat Generation icon Allen Ginsberg in this biopic set during the famed poet's early years at Columbia University, and centering on a murder investigation involving Ginsberg, his handsome classmate Lucien Carr, and fellow Beat author William Burroughs. The year is 1944. Ginsberg (Radcliffe) is a young student at Columbia University when he falls hopelessly under the spell of charismatic classmate Carr (Dane DeHaan). Alongside Carr, Ginsberg manages to strike up friendships with aspiring writers William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) that would cast conformity to the wind, and serve as the foundation of the Beat movement. Meanwhile, an older outsider named David Krammerer falls deeply and madly in love with the impossibly cool Carr. Later, when Krammerer dies under mysterious circumstances, police arrest Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr as potential suspects, paving the way for an investigation that would have a major impact on the lives of the three emerging artists. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kyra Sedgwick, David Cross, and Michael C.
