The trailer for Howl, which centers on the obscenity trial Allen Ginsberg (James Franco) faced after the publication of his poem of the same name, is now online. We see a lot of Franco and the performance EW critic Owen Gleiberman said nails “the poet’s winningly bombastic urban-intellectual glee; he’s like a young rabbi letting himself go in the New York beatnik underground.” (The film screened at Sundance.) Watch it below. I’m sure I should be thinking of weightier things to type, but really, all that’s going through my mind is that I’m glad all of glimpses of Jon Hamm (who plays the attorney who defends City Lights bookstore proprietor Lawrence Ferlinghetti, so he’s in a nice suit) are in color.
