Goofs

In the restaurant when Buddy and his father are eating oyster's, the Tabasco bottle on the table is not vintage from the 1930s. It is the present-day bottle with a red plastic top. That would not have been a 30s bottle. See more »

Truman Capote
1 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One Christmas was an autobiographical short story written by Truman Capote. Buddy, in the story, is Capote. Capote's father was actually a scam artist who spent time in prison. This story along with "A Christmas Memory" and "The Thanksgiving Visitor" make a wonderful trilogy. This movie doesn't do justice to Capote's beautiful, bittersweet prose, but might be worth seeing if you are a big fan of Capote (like I am) or of Katherine Hepburn, as this was one of her last appearances. Also, the wonderful Julie Harris plays Sook, who is the heart and soul of the movie (and the stories mentioned above.) However, if you are looking for a "happy, happy, joy, joy" Christmas movie - you should probably skip this one.
