Storyline

On November 16, 1959, Truman Capote reads about the murder of a Kansas family. There are no suspects. With Harper Lee, he visits the town: he wants to write about their response. First he must get locals to talk, then, after arrests, he must gain access to the prisoners. One talks constantly; the other, Perry Smith, says little. Capote is implacable, wanting the story, believing this book will establish a new form of reportage: he must figure out what Perry wants. Their relationship becomes something more than writer and character: Perry killed in cold blood, the state will execute him in cold blood; does Capote get his story through cold calculation, or is there a price for him to pay?

Goofs

When Capote first visits Hickok and Smith, Lowell Lee Andrews ("Andy") is seen occupying the cell next to Hickok. The movie is clear at several points that Capote's conversations with Smith and Hickok took place in the county jail at Garden City, Kansas before and during the murder trial. Hickok and Smith only became acquainted with "Andy" while all three were on death row at the Kansas State Penetentiary in Lansing. The three men were never incarcerated together in the county lockup, as "Andy" committed his murders hundreds of miles away from Holcomb in the town of Wollcott. See more »

INFAMOUS outshines Capote
30 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Infamous is by far the better movie about Truman Capote. I saw this film in Venice where the audience gave it a 15 minute standing ovation. There is a lot that is brilliant about this film. The cast is perfect. This film shows us more characters than the previous movie and each is played beautifully by a highly competent actor. INFAMOUS is one of the most effective and unique films I have seen in a long time. It treats its' subject with humor but also with emotional depth. I was moved by Truman's journey. His relationship with Perry Smith is complex and heartbreaking. Daniel Craig rides a thin line between sympathetic and dangerous. He is a truly gifted artist. Doug McGrath's film-making is brave and true to itself in every way. Toby Jones is the perfect Truman. I was unfamiliar with him as an actor and totally surprised by his amazing, seamless performance. I'm telling you, Toby Jones is Oscar material.
