Added DiffLines:

* GreenEyedMonster: Best exemplified by the party celebrating the successful launch of To Kill a Mockingbird. Everyone is congratulating Harper Lee on both a great book and a great movie adaptation...except Capote, who is alone and sulking at a bar because it isn't *his* accolades.
--> '''Capote:''' ''(to himself)'' Frankly, I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Added DiffLines:

* NominalHero: Capote is our protagonist, but there's not a whole lot of heroic to him. He's a snob, convinced of his own genius, a jealous and envious man, and [[ArsonMurderAndLifesaving an impeccable writer.]]

*** And when the writer in question has as ''titanic'' an ego as Truman Capote, that makes it even more unwise.

--> '''Smith:''' He's naturally mendacious. If he had a hundred dollars he'd steal a stick of chewing gum.

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).
