From A-Line Pictures in New York:
We are pleased to announce the release of ‘Capote,’ the first film to be produced under the A-Line Pictures banner. ‘Capote’ tells the story of legendary author Truman Capote, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, on his odyssey to create the landmark bestseller "In Cold Blood." As Peter Travers of Rolling Stone wrote in his review of the film-
“it's the riveting focus on that period that lifts Capote above the herd of biopics...first-time feature director Bennett Miller won praise for his 1998 documentary The Cruise, about a Manhattan tour guide, but nothing about that romp prepares you for the dramatic fireworks of Capote...credit actor Dan Futterman, in a vividly impressive screenwriting debut, for carving an astutely narrowed script out of Gerald Clarke's 1988 Capote biography...Philip Seymour Hoffman's unmissable and unforgettable performance as Truman Capote should make him the front-runner for every Best Actor prize in the book...Capote is a movie that doesn't pull its punches. It's a knockout.”
Capote opened this Friday, September 30th in New York and Los Angeles. In the weeks that follow it will be opening wider at cinemas near you. Please spread the word!
A-Line Pictures is an independent film production company representing the union of producer Caroline Baron and her producing partner/husband, writer-director Anthony Weintraub.
