The brilliant work, personal struggles and cultural impact of iconic American writers Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams explodes onto the screen in the innovative new dual-portrait documentary Truman & Tennessee.
Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland masterfully collages a wealth of archival material, including dishy talk show appearances with Dick Cavett and David Frost, with clips from some of the duo’s most memorable movie adaptations: A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood.
Featuring vibrant voiceover work by award-winning actors Jim Parsons (as Capote) and Zachary Quinto (as Williams), the film is dripping with wit and wisdom. It is a celebration of both men’s fearless candor and often tumultuous friendship that honors how their identity as gay Southerners informed their timeless artistic achievements and relationships with family, colleagues, confidants and – most significantly – each other.
