THE LIFE AND TIMES OF HARVEY MILK filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman make an ambitious leap to narrative film with this hybrid of live-action drama and animation. HOWL divides its focus between the real-life obscenity trial of the eponymous poem by Allen Ginsberg (James Franco) and the epic poem itself, which is brought to life in animated form. This film also stars David Strathairn, Jon Hamm, Jeff Daniels, and Mary-Louise Parker.
