Featuring a stellar cast including Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster, Keith Carradine and Nate Parker, the story follows an outlaw who escapes from prison to reunite with his wife and the daughter he’s never met. And that’s just part of the film, which we called “a searing, romantic crime drama and love story.” As these images suggest, it’s not only a great story, but it’s beautifully lensed as well. Here’s the film’s new synopsis.
Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration.
Set against the backdrop of 1970′s Texas Hill Country, first time director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck and Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a story of love, motherhood and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.
Produced by Toby Halbrooks, James M. Johnston, Jay Van Hoy, Lars Knudsen, Amy Kaufman and Cassian Elwes, “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” will arrive in theaters via IFC Films on August 16th. It will play as part of the Critics’ Week section at Cannes and also hits BAMcinemaFest in New York City in June.
The Works U.K. Distribution has snapped up British rights to John Krokidas’ Kill Your Darlings, starring Daniel Radcliffe as Allan Ginsberg.
Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines), Ben Foster (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), Michael C. Hall (TV’s Dexter), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Jack Huston (Wilde Salome) also star in the movie based on the true story of a murder in 1944 that drew beat generation writers Ginsberg (Radcliffe),Lucien Carr (DeHaan), Jack Kerouac (Huston) and William Burroughs (Foster).
The Benaroya Pictures and Killer Films picture premiered in Sundance.
If poetry doesn’t broaden our view of our world and force us to push the boundaries of our lives, then it’s pointless. Poetry cannot always tap into the chaos and beauty of life if it must be constrained by meter, verse, and rules set down centuries ago. Poetry, when wielded by genius, can seduce, defend, condemn, and most importantly, transform. Words are powerful enough to change the world, but even in the hands of the most gifted writers, they can be futile against our frailties, insecurities, and desires. In his magnificent debut feature, director and co-writer John Krokidas has created a moving, exhilarating, and heartbreaking film in Kill Your Darlings. Led by breathtaking performances by stars Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, and Ben Foster, Kill Your Darlings watches the greatest writers of a generation push the boundaries of modern American culture only to find that even the best words, the most well-spoken words, the most honest words, can fail when spoken to a shattered heart.
After grabbing our attention with an intense opening scene between the two lead characters, Kill Your Darlings circles back to 1943 and a young Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe) going to Columbia University to follow in his father’s footsteps as a poet. Ginsberg, a fan of Walt Whitman, quickly bristles as the rules his professor attempts to force on poetry. The young man’s rebellion catches the attention of classmate Lucien Carr (DeHaan), who introduces Ginsberg into a “wonderland” of expanded thinking courtesy of big ideas coupled with doses of Benzedrine and nitrous oxide. Through Carr, Ginsberg befriends William Burroughs (Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), and the young men go forth to create “The New Vision”, which will tear down artistic fascism and bring the world into a new age of creative freedom. But a shadow is cast over their glorious, boundary-breaking mission as Ginsberg becomes further enthralled with Carr, and competes for his affections with David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall), who has a complicated relationship with Lucien.
Krokidas shares the passion, the energy, and the erudite rebellion of his main characters. In one of the film’s best scenes, the members of “The New Vision” break into Columbia’s restricted section to liberate material like Lady Chatterly’s Lover and images of pornographic Roman pottery. Up until this point, Krokidas uses period-appropriate music. But once the break-in begins, Krokidas plays the song “Wolf Like Me” by TV on the Radio. Like his characters, Krokidas refuses to play by contemporary rules, and he celebrates the wild, passionate, and aggressive art brought forth by Ginsberg, Burroughs, and Kerouac. Kill Your Darlings brims with vitality and verve because Krokidas knows how to tap into the passion of the characters, but never forgets the subtext of his story.
Director John Krokidas and his cast introduce us to their drama set in 1944 about a murder that brings together poets Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and William Burroughs (Ben Foster).
