Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

52 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,697 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 Halcomb, 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 prisoners, 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

Pakistani police, American embassy personnel, and the FBI examine witnesses, phone records, e-mails, and hard drives. Who has him? Where is he? There's also the why: because of U.S. abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo, because of a history of Journal cooperation with the CIA, because Pearl is a Jew? Through it all, Mariane is clearheaded, direct, and determined to do whatever she can, whatever it takes, to get her husband back

Truman Capote : the tiny terror by Marc Jampolsky( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."
