It's San Francisco in 1957, and an American masterpiece is put on trial. Howl, the film, recounts this dark moment using three interwoven threads: the tumultuous life events that led a young Allen Ginsberg to find his true voice as an artist, society's reaction (the obscenity trial), and mind-expanding animation that echoes the startling originality of the poem itself. All three coalesce in a genre-bending hybrid that brilliantly captures a pivotal moment-the birth of a counterculture.Howl featuring James Franco and Jon Hamm is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming with subscription on Hulu, streaming on Fandor, and 5 others. It's a biography and drama movie with an average Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 62% and a better than average IMDb audience rating of 6.8 (12,047 votes).
