Added DiffLines:

* TranquilFury: Maybe not fury, but certainly annoyance. When Perry foolishly condescends to define a word (something Perry often did in real life), Truman calls him on it, even though he doesn't raise his voice. He's so irritated he ends the visit right then and there.
** In retrospect, acting pedantic about vocabulary toward a ''published writer'' is not at all wise.

The plot of the film begins with the discovery of the dead bodies of four of the members by a family friend. While reading ''The New York Times'', Truman Capote is riveted by the story of the family and calls William Shawn, then the editor of ''Magazine/TheNewYorker'', to announce that he will personally document the tragedy.

The plot of the film begins with the discovery of the dead bodies of four of the members Clutter family in late 1959 by a family friend. While reading ''The New York Times'', Truman Capote is riveted by the story of the family and calls William Shawn, then the editor of ''Magazine/TheNewYorker'', to announce that he will personally document the tragedy.


Added DiffLines:

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Capote was 35 years old at the time of the Clutter murders, yet he appears to look like he could reasonably be in his 50s or 60s (the voice Hoffman uses seems to support that).

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Perry, according to Truman, as well as his portrayal in the actual book. Whether he is this or just a DracoInLeatherPants is up to AlternativeCharacterInterpretation.
