London Film Festival 2013: Kill Your Darlings Premiere
Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan hit the town

18 October 2013  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

It was time to don berets and turtlenecks in London last night as Beat poet drama Kill Your Darlings premiered. Then again, since this story of young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe) and friends is a sort of origin story, perhaps you can wait until you've seen it to dress appropriately. Either way, the film by John Krokidas premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last night with Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan and Jack Huston in attendance.

DeHaan plays Lucien, an outrageous and apparently uninhibited student who befriends the young Ginsberg as he arrives at Columbia university in New York City. Lucien introduces Allen to cool new literary friends like William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston). But Lucien's older friend, David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall) is inclined to object to his friendship with Ginsberg and a tragedy soon draws the group together.

Radcliffe, DeHaan, Huston and Krokidas were all on hand in London last night to launch the film at the LFF, ahead of its UK release on December 6. Look out for more from Radcliffe and DeHaan on Empire that week.
