After reading a newspaper article about the just occurred November 14, 1959 cold blooded murders of the Clutter family in their rural Kansas home, Truman feels compelled to write about that event as his next article. So he and his personal assistant Nelle Harper Lee, also a southern born New Yorker and an aspiring writer of her own, head to Kansas to research the story first-hand. Truman hopes to use his celebrity status to gain access to whomever he needs, such as to Laura Kinney, a friend of the Clutter daughter she who discovered the bodies, and to Alvin Dewey, the lead police investigator and also a Clutter family friend. If his celebrity doesn’t work, Truman will grease the wheels by whatever means necessary. When the police eventually charge suspects, two young men named Dick Hickcock and Perry Smith, Truman uses those same tactics to gain access to them. Truman’s fascination with the story makes him believe that he can revolutionize writing by expanding the germ of the article into what he calls a non-fiction novel. His personal involvement also changes as he grows emotionally attached to Perry, the seemingly sensitive and thus probable submissive in the criminal pairing, thus Truman becoming part of the story itself. Article or non-fiction novel, Truman knows that he has to take it to its natural conclusion, something which he cannot force. But also missing are the details of the November 14, 1959 event itself, something that neither Dick or Perry have divulged even in testimony.
Plot: A biopic of the writer, Truman Capote and his assignment for The New Yorker to write the non-fiction book, ‘In Cold Blood’.

Every action has a reaction, and watching “Capote”, we can’t help but wonder how it ever got made. “Capote” is entrancing, dark, depressing, and quite satisfying. It benefits from Hoffman’s perfect performance. He embodies the physical and psychological make up of a man who was the toast of the nation before and after the publication of its classic novel, “In Cold Blood”. As a human being, he appeared to be an intelligent, fascinating, and manipulative creature. He could have gotten away with almost anything. Then he found the two criminals behind one of the most heinous crimes of the century and might have gotten to the realization he could also be trapped by their own dark existences.
It is difficult to ascertain what happened to Capote after he developed a relationship with Smith. He grows attracted to the actions and revelations behind this killer, and we never really know what is exactly going on. There are displays of guilt and detachment at different parts in the film. What we do see is that something really affected the man, and it changed his life for good.
The film moves slowly but never loses its audience. Along with Hoffman, a remarkable supporting cast keeps us interests going, and enough is presented to make us want to know more. That will probably be the film’s only flaw. It fails to deliver everything it promises. It is a big satisfying tease, but after all, we are left with an endless number of questions. Keener is wonderful as Capote’s supporting friend, and in his lover’s role, Bruce Greenwood intrigues us as well, with the dubious character that never gives enough information to explain his attraction to a total opposite.
“Capote” is a really good film and should be admire for it achieves. For those who want to explore more in depth what lies behind the protagonists of the movie, there are several books that will give you a more detailed background on their nature. The truth, will however, remain, a big mystery.
Bennett Miller’s biopic about author Truman Capote and based on the Arthur Clarke biography of the same name. The film focuses on Capote’s time spent researching the killing of a family in Kansas at the end of the 50’s which would later be the subject of Capote’s classic “non-fiction” novel In Cold Blood, which quickly rocketed the young writer to super-stardom. The film’s structure is a bit perplexing; a film could easily be made from a number of segments in Capote’s fascinating life and this version chooses to elaborate on the 10 years he spent on this particular work, which is essentially the middle of his life. This period certainly yields a lot of interesting material, yet I feel that those who have not read Clarke’s biography may feel a little lost as there is very little context included. The most awesome facet of the film is Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s incredible impersonation of Capote; he managed to capture all of the complexity and vulnerability of Capote’s character, and the film is very interesting in revealing how the young writer’s efforts on this project may have ultimately destroyed him.
The film is very engaging and often disturbing. However, a few inaccuracies are worth mentioning. The film seems to depict Capote as being uncaring and disinterested in Dick, the less intelligent of the two killers, yet the biography makes it clear that Capote devoted a great deal of attention to both killers as they awaited execution, despite his clear affection for Perry. Also, the film indicates that In Cold Blood’s reception was universal acclaim; quite the contrary, many mainstream reviewers and writers such as Norman Mailer denied the book’s literary merits. And thirdly, the title card at the end of the film states that In Cold Blood made Truman Capote the most famous writer in America (which is disputable), and that he never finished another book, which is blatantly false. Capote published Music for Chameleons in 1980, a collection of short stories clearly conceived as a complete book. Despite these problems, Capote is a very compelling film, and Hoffman’s performance is one of his best yet.
