A truly great performance by Hoffman. The movie is quite interesting and does a good job of portraying the time period. Still I wanted to know more. Given that Capote never wrote another book, maybe that part of his lift would have been more intersting. Still a good and worthwhile movie.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Truman Capote, during his research for his book In Cold Blood, an account of the murder of a Kansas family, the writer develops a close relationship with Perry Smith, one of the killers.
