The dangerous quest for artistic greatness chosen by Truman Capote (Toby Jones), accompanied by lifelong friend and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Nelle Harper Lee (Sandra Bullock) is outlined as he travels to Kansas to investigate the brutal murder of the Clutter family.

Throughout this six-year journey, the eccentric, hilarious and cunning Capote is definitively revealed: to satisfy his insatiable ambition, Truman consorted with his “Swans,” the glamorous ladies who ruled the upper strata of New York society, just as easily as he regaled wide-eyed Kansans with tales of Bogart and Brando.

A compelling study of the complex and tortured relationship that resulted between Truman Capote and convicted murderer Perry Smith (Daniel Craig), a bond formed in a prison cell that brought the destruction of Capote’s career, as well as his soul.

Based on the book “Truman Capote: In Which Various Friends, Enemies, Acquaintances and Detractors Recall His Turbulent Career” by George Plimpton.
