Capote ~ 2005

12 Apr

It’s 1959, and celebrated author Truman Capote (Philip Seymour Hoffman) decides to make his next project the shocking murders of the Clutter family in a small, conservative Kansas town where nothing usually happens. Then, researching his project, the author becomes fascinated or some say even enamoured with one of the killers, Perry Smith (Clifton Collins Jr.).

An outstanding film, showcasing one of the greatest biographical performances by Hoffman, at once celebrating, analysing and criticising an important writer and his major book. You’ll appreciate it more if you’ve read In Cold Blood or seen the film recently. B+
