Kill Your Darlings: Daniel Radcliffe and Allen Ginsberg come of age

Daniel Radcliffe is taking another step away from his most famous role as boy wizard Harry Potter, portraying American Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg, in his latest film Kill Your Darlings.

Radcliffe has been earning some good reviews for his work in the film.
