Truman & Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation (2020)

  • Documentary
  • 1h 21m

Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams catapulted to fame in the 1950s, sparking a friendship and rivalry spanning nearly forty years until their deaths within a year of each other. This revealing film brings the two forces together in a unique and fascinating dialogue, comparing and contrasting their trajectories through duelling voices, culled from archival footage, and using the voices of actors Jim Parsons and Zachary Quinto portraying, respectively, Capote and Williams at various stages of their lives. Both created rich, imaginary worlds and characters that left indelible marks on the era, and both paid the price of colossal success and fame through alcoholism and periods of artistic stagnation.
