A murder in 1944 draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.
In this film, David Cross plays Allen Ginsberg's father, Louis. In I'm Not There. (2007), David Cross played Allen Ginsberg himself.
You said I was everything to you. You are everything to me. Everything to me, do you hear me? Please, Lu. Please?
Jack Kerouac, upon his arrest, contacts his father and we hear an American accent on the line. Kerouac's parents were French-speaking Quebecois and it took Jack until his late teens to fully master English, which he spoke with a slight Québec lilt; it is thus unlikely his father and he would have spoken in English, much less in a General American accent.
The first part of the end credits run over the top of photographs of the real Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Lucien Carr and William S. Burroughs.
