Based on events that inspired American writer Truman Capote to pen the groundbreaking bestseller &In Cold Blood - the non-fiction novel about the tragic 1959 murder of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas - Capote is coming to Blu-ray on 10th May 2010 courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
This special Blu-ray Box Set also includes the 1967 film In Cold Blood, a literal interpretation of Capote's novel, adapted and directed by Oscar-winner Richard Brooks (Elmer Gantry) and starring Robert Blake (TV's Baretta) as Perry Smith and Scott Wilson (The Ninth Configuration) as Richard Hickock.
In Capote Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Boat That Rocked, Doubt, Almost Famous) flawlessly portrays the brilliant and eccentric author, earning an Academy Award for this role. He is supported by a dynamic cast that includes Catherine Keener (An American Crime, Being John Malkovich) as Harper Lee, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author and Capote's true-life companion, as well as Oscar-winning actor Chris Cooper (Adaptation) and Bob Balaban (Gosford Park).
Bonus materials include a two-part documentary on the making-of Capote and two audio commentary options, one with star Philip Seymour Hoffman & director Bennett Miller, and the other with Miller and cinematographer Adam Kimmel (Lars and the Real Girl, New York, I Love You). The two-disc set also includes a compelling documentary about the life of Truman Capote entitled Answered Prayers, the same name as the unfinished tell-all novel that Capote started in 1958 and which was published posthumously as "Answered Prayers: An Unfinished Novel."
