Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

On the night of November 14, 1959, in Holcomb, Kansas, a farmhouse is broken into by Perry Smith and Dick Hickock. With a 'no witness' policy, they murder the entire family. Truman Capote, a popular writer for The New Yorker, learns about the horrific and senseless murder. Inspired by the story material, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to Holcomb to do research for an article. As Capote digs deeper into the story, he decides to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, 'In Cold Blood.' He arranges extensive interviews with Smith and Hickock, especially with Smith, a man with a troubled history. As he works on his book, Capote feels some compassion for Smith and helps the duo get a new lawyer. However, that feeling deeply conflicts with his need to finished his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction

Back in the 1970s, several patients in an experimental sleep study reported seeing shadowy intruders. These patients - and hundreds of others - died in their sleep soon after. Doctors called the phenomenon "Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome" and refused to discuss the shadows. Now, a struggling late-night radio host (Dallas Roberts of THE GREY and TV's THE WALKING DEAD) and a skeptical CDC investigator (Alison Eastwood of MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL) have begun researching a disturbing new outbreak of shadow sightings and sleep fatalities. Could this be a case of paranoid hallucination, or are these victims literally being scared to death by actual nightmare creatures? Anne Dudek (TV's COVERT AFFAIRS, TV's HOUSE M.D.) and Mariah Bonner (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) co-star in this supernatural thriller based on true events
