Capote (2005)

The gripping, true story of Truman Capote, who spent several years interviewing Perry Smith, a convicted murderer who was eventually executed along with an accomplice in April of 1965.

I have nothing funny or clever to say, to cheapen this movie. This is A-class storytelling, action, and film direction. See this movie.

"Capote" gets 5 out of 5 stars. It delicately leads you from the discovery of the bodies and Capote's initial conversations and interviews, to the unsettling execution of Perry Smith.
