About the film:

Official selection of the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival. “Answered Prayers” was meant to be Truman Capote’s greatest masterpiece, an epic portrait of New York’s glittering jet-set society. Instead, it sparked his downfall. Through never-before-heard audio archives and interviews with Capote’s friends and enemies, The Capote Tapes reveals the rise and fall of America’s most iconic gay writer.

“paints a hypnotic, highly engaging, and often quite uproarious collage of the famed writer”

Cleveland International Film Festival
