Phenomenal, Absolutely Phenomenal

Every single aspect of this glorious film hit the bulls-eye. EVERYTHING!!! Philip Seymour-Hoffman's performance is among the most astounding that I've ever seen; he captures Capote's every mannerism: the high voice, the squinted eyes, every lip lick, it all feels absolutely genuine. Catherine Keener is also notably good as Harper Lee, the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Truman's close friend. And I haven't even begun about the story. OH, the story! It takes us through the grueling, emotionally and mentally toiling research for "In Cold Blood," Capote's most famous novel. It (as most know) tells the story of two young men who, without any apparent motive, break into a Kansas farmhouse and murder its four inhabitants. Supposedly the world's first "nonfiction novel," its arrival becomes eagerly awaited. While Truman gathers information for the novel, he becomes somewhat obsessed with one of the killers, Perry, and they develop something of a friendship. The scene where Perry tells Truman the story of the night of the murders is compelling, haunting, and sticks with you for days after viewing. Put simply, you owe it to yourself to see this film. There is a fair quotient of violence (if only briefly), but not much else.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman is amazing as Truman Capote. I don't know why common sense said "adults only". I'm 15, and I loved it. Not at all as violent as it says. Only one f-word. Its clear that the filmmakers were trying for a pg-13, but ended up with an R because of a very brief, bloody scene towards the end.
