“It’s an interesting portrayal of Allen Ginsberg and his first year at Columbia in the late ’40s and seeing his influences and seeing these young writers who are very hungry for a new form of expression,” says the Dairy Center for the Arts’s Glenn Webb. “In typical Hollywood fashion, in order to create a heightened level of interest, they frame it around a murder that was committed, but the movie never fails to lose sight of what’s important — their pursuit of artistic expression.”
Kill Your Darlings screens at the Dairy Center’s Boedecker Theater, 2590 Walnut Street, today at 4:30 p.m. and tomorrow at 7 p.m. (with a special talk-back after the movie); additional showings are at 4 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday.
