And in case you want even more details about the movie:
The year is 1944. Ginsberg is a young student at Columbia University when he falls hopelessly under the spell of charismatic classmate Carr. Alongside Carr, Ginsberg manages to strike up friendships with aspiring writers William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac that would cast conformity to the wind, and serve as the foundation of the Beat movement. Meanwhile, an older outsider named David Kammerer falls deeply and madly in love with the impossibly cool Carr. Later, when Kammerer dies under mysterious circumstances, police arrest Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr as potential suspects, paving the way for an investigation that would have a major impact on the lives of the three emerging artists.
