5 Great Biopics About Writers
Slyvia Plath stuck her head in the oven, Lord Byron had a pet bear at Cambridge, and Marquis de Sade makes 50 Shades of Grey look like a children's book. The lives of writers are certainly film-worthy. Released this week and starring Daniel Radcliffe, Kill Your Darlings follows the lives of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William S. Burroughs during the time of Lucien Carr's murder in 1944. Featuring all of the outrageous characters, illicitness, and counterculture of the Beat Generation, the movie looks promising and reminded us that writers' lives make for very interesting films.
