(Bennett Miller, US 2005, 114 min., 35mm)
It’s 1959, and author and socialite Truman Capote travels to Kansas to research a book on the murder of a family and the story of the murderer’s capture. It isn’t long, however, before Capote becomes close with one of the accused, Perry Smith. Capote follows their relationship through their conversations and the internal struggles Capote faced in writing In Cold Blood. Hoffman’s Academy Award–winning and transformative performance as the title character showed just how far-reaching his talent was in actuality.
