The screenplay of the new film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Truman Capote on his six-year investigation of a cold-blooded killer

It's 1959, and the celebrated author of Breakfast at Tiffany's is desperate for a new subject. Deep in rural Kansas a family of four is brutally murdered. In an unlikely conjunction, the flamboyant, homosexual Capote sets out to investigate the case...

The result was a gripping book about humanity's capacity for evil, In Cold Blood

But what are Capote's own motives as he waits impatiently for the death sentence to be carried out so that he can finish his masterpiece?

'A clear, steady gaze graces the smart biopic Capote ... It's an etched-in-acid portrait of a writer whose talent was as ruthless as it was brilliant' ~ Newsweek

'One of the best films of the year' ~ Rolling Stone
