In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the convicted killers, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for 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

With the help of the maverick CIA agent, Gust Avrakotos, Wilson dedicates his canny political efforts to supply the Afghan mujahideen with the weapons and support needed to defeat the Soviet Union. Ultimately, Charlie learns that while military victory can be obtained, there are other consequences and prices to that fight that are ignored to everyone's sorrow. Based on a true story

James Lipton hosts an evening of discussion with film and stage actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hoffman speaks about his upbringing in Fairport, New York, beginning to acting in high school, attending New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, being cast by director Austin Pendleton in his first professional roles, and launching his film career. Hoffman elaborates on his major roles in such motion pictures as Scent of a woman, Boogie nights, Happiness, Flawless opposite Robert De Niro, in which he played a man who wanted to be a woman, Magnolia, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, and The talented Mr. Ripley. The discussion is illustrated with clips from some of these works. Hoffman speaks about his current Broadway roles in the revival of Sam Shepard's True West, in which he alternates the main two parts of Lee and Austin with actor John C. Reilly, his involvement with the LAByrinth Theater Company, as both actor and director, and what he seeks as an actor from a director. A brief question and answer session with Hoffman and the Actors Studio master's degree students concludes the program
