Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

30 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 2,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 la Familia Savage, un irreverente drama excepcionalmente ejecutado, Tamara Jenkins supera un extraño reto: hacernos reír y llorar a la vez. En lo que puede llegar a convertirse en un nuevo género, la historia del adulto contemporáneo, Jenkins refleja todo el dolor y la incertidumbre por lo que un par de hermanos adultos deben atravesar, al ser abruptamente arrancados de sus absorbentes vidas para hacerse cargo de un padre que realmente nunca se tomó la molestia de cuidarlos a ellos"--Envase

Capote( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Set in the period during which Capote - the celebrated author of Breakfast at Tiffany's - researched and wrote his chilling account of a Kansas family's brutal murder by "thrill killers" Richard Hickock and Perry Smith, the film paints an unflattering picture of its subject, who for many years was an A-list party guest, raconteur, bon vivant, and darling of New York's literary set. Capote ruthlessly exploited and manipulated everyone around him - including Smith, whom he befriended and pretended to represent to the outside world - to get the story he knew would be his crowning achievement. That even included his loyal friend Harper Lee and his patient lover, Jack Dunphy, who sacrificed much to help Truman achieve his goal. The self-loathing and deep-rooted insecurity that compelled Capote to dismiss or reject those who cared about him most is revealed
