Synopsis

Writer Truman Capote was internationally renowned for his fine creative talents. He was a man equally capable of turning his hand to journalism, plays, novels or film scripts. But he was also a difficult man whose decision-making could be highly questionable - and both sides of his personality would come into play when he wrote a bestselling book about the murder of a family in rural Holcomb, Kansas. This is a fine portrait of someone for who the story was always the most important thing, and a fascinating glimpse of an early example of what we now know as celebrity culture.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
