Dir. Bennett Miller. 2005, 114 mins. 35mm. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener. Novelist and nonfiction writer Truman Capote’s investigation of the shocking murder of a Kansas family, which resulted in the classic book In Cold Blood, is the basis of Bennett Miller’s exquisitely wrought drama, the film that earned Hoffman his Academy Award. As Roger Ebert observed, “Philip Seymour Hoffman’s precise, uncanny performance as Capote doesn’t imitate the author so much as channel him, as a man whose peculiarities mask great intelligence and deep wounds.”
