Beat Generation icon Allen Ginsberg?s early years at Columbia University are highlighted in this star-studded and literate film. Centering on the nascent friendships between Ginsberg, Lucien Carr, William Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac, the foundations of the Beat movement are explored in all their vibrant color and shadow. Startling events and surprising passions deeply impact the lives of the emerging artists as they cast conformity to the wind.
