In November, 1959, the shocking murder of a smalltown Kansas family captures the imagination of Truman Capote (Philip Seymour Hoffman), famed author of "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

With his childhood friend Harper Lee (Catherine Keener), writer of the soon-to-be published "To Kill a Mockingbird," Capote sets out to investigate, winning over the locals despite his flamboyant appearance and style. When he forms a bond with the killers and their execution date nears, the writing of "In Cold Blood," a book that will change the course of American Literature, takes a drastic toll on Capote, changing him in ways he never imagined.

Stellar performances from Hoffman and Keener, as well as Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper (Adaptation) are why critics are calling Capote a "must-see movie."

Notes
Trivia: Sandra Bullock was considered for the role of Harper Lee. (more)

Goofs: Anachronisms: Capote first visited Kansas in late 1959 (right after reading about the murders). In a later scene, he tells his publisher "I've put four years into this." That would make it late 1963. In the next scene, however, he goes to the premiere of Harper Lee's movie "To Kill a Mockingbird," which in fact opened in 1962. (more)

Quotes: William Shawn: This book will change how people write. (more)

Awards: Won Oscar. Another 39 wins & 29 nominations (more)
