Description 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?

    In Infamous you see Truman with all his Swans of Fifth Avenue friends and his friendship with Nell. His friendship with Perry, the completion of the novel, the inevitable way it changes him and how he is to all his friends through interviews really shine through in Infamous. Love Sandra Bullock! The movie Capote - to me it showed Truman as the "cold" one; getting aggravated with Perry when he won't give his side and lying about the title. Truman trying to escape within himself when he knows the end of the book is near but Capote doesn't delve in his investigating or the love that Perry and Capote supposedly shared. I wanted to read and know more about Truman Capote after watching Infamous. It is my pick of which one to watch and enjoy.

Although platonic due to Strachey's homosexuality, the relationship was nevertheless a deep and complicated one. When Carrington did develop a more physical relationship with soldier Ralph Partridge, Strachey was able to welcome him as a friend, although Partridge remained somewhat uneasy, not so much with Strachey's sexual orientation as with the fact...
