    Synopsis:
    CAPOTE
    In November 1959, the shocking murder of a smalltown Kansas family captures the imagination of Truman Capote, famed author of Breakfast At Tiffany's. Played by Academy Award and Bafta winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (Best Actor, 2005), Capote sets out to investigate with his childhood friend Harper Lee (Catherine Keener), 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.

    IN COLD BLOOD
    This is the powerful, true story of a callous murder, based upon the best-selling novel by Truman Capote. A prosperous and respected Kansas farmer, his wife and his two teenage children are wantonly and brutally slaughtered. The murderers are two mindless ex-convict drifters: Perry Smith (Robert Blake) and Dick Hickock (Scott Wilson). The story penetrates the inner workings of the criminals' minds as it follows their purposeless meanderings through Mexico and the United States in evasion of the law and finally to the dramatic end of their journey.
