Beat poet Allen Ginsberg is given the Hollywood treatment with James Franco playing the key role. Entitled "Howl" after Ginsberg famous poem, Ginsberg not only documented the Beat movement, he had a wonderful lyrical way of delivering his words.

According to Evil Monito:

"HOWL interweaves three stories: the unfolding of the landmark 1957 obscenity trial; an imaginative animated ride through the prophetic masterpiece; and a unique portrait of a man who found new ways to express himself, and in doing so, changed his own life and galvanized a generation."

Below is the Allen Ginsberg's actual voice reading "Howl" in three parts.
