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

"En novembre 1959, Truman Capote, auteur de Breakfast at Tiffany's et personnalité très en vue, apprend dans le New York Times le meurtre de quatre membres d'une famille de fermiers du Kansas. Ce genre de fait divers n'est pas rare, mais celui-ci l'intrigue. En précurseur, il pense qu'une histoire vraie peut être aussi passionnante qu'une fiction si elle est bien racontée. Il voit là l'occasion de vérifier sa théorie et persuade le magazine The New Yorker de l'envoyer au Kansas. Il part avec une amie d'enfance, Harper Lee. A son arrivée, son apparence et ses manières provoquent d'abord l'hostilité de ces gens modestes qui se considèrent encore comme une part du Vieil Ouest, mais il gagne rapidement leur confiance, et notamment celle d'Alvin Dewey, l'agent du Bureau d'Investigation qui dirige l'enquête. "De sang froid" , film de Richard Brooks réal. en 1967, s'inspire de ce même fait divers."
Truman Capote : a sangue freddo by Bennett Miller( Visual )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kansas, 1959. In una livida mattina di novembre una famiglia di agricoltori, i Clutter, vengono trovati assassinati nella loro fattoria. A New York, intanto, l'omicidio collettivo di Holcomb colpisce e ispira lo scrittore Truman Capote che parte per la cittadina del Kansas accompagnato dall'amica Harper Lee. A interessare lo scrittore sono le reazioni della provincia all'efferato delitto. Ma l'arresto improvviso di Dick Hickock e di Perry Smith, rei del crimine, trasforma la natura del progetto di Truman. Quello che doveva essere un servizio di cronaca da pubblicare su "The New Yorker" diventa il romanzo più ambizioso dello scrittore di New Orleans: "A Sangue freddo". Nei sei anni che separano i colpevoli dalla morte per impiccagione, Capote, intratterrà con almeno uno di loro, Smith, una fitta corrispondenza. (My movies)

"Mit einer Baseball-Mannschaft geht es bergab, weil der finanzschwache Verein seine Spitzenspieler nicht halten kann. Zusammen mit seinem neuen Partner sucht ihr auch privat gebeutelter Manager sein Heil in der gegenteiligen Strategie: Er verpflichtet Spieler, die von anderen Vereinen ausgemustert wurden, und beweist, dass auch in "Losern" jede Menge Potenzial stecken kann. Sportfilm nach bewährtem Muster, der sich dank seiner emotionalen und bildgewaltigen Inszenierung sowie der herausragenden Besetzung zum mitreißenden Plädoyer für Spielfreude, Solidarität und Unkorrumpierbarkeit durch die Dominanz kapitalistischer Marktmechanismen im Sport mausert."
