Capote

Bennett Miller / US, CA, 2005 / 114 min.

Superb biopic of Truman Capote, author of the famous In Cold Blood, for which he interviewed the murderers of a farming family. Philip Seymour Hoffmann is spectacular in his Oscar-winning role as the eccentric writer and charming master manipulator.

poster Capote (Bennett Miller, US 2005)
In 1959 Truman Capote, a popular writer for The New Yorker, heard about the gruesome, senseless murder of a farming family in Kansas. Capote and his childhood friend Harper Lee smelled a good an article for the paper, and set off for the scene of the crime. Capote dug deeper and deeper into the story and became closely involved with the perpetrators, laying the foundations for his greatest work, In Cold Blood.
