“Ever since I was a child, folks have thought they had me pegged, because of the way I am, the way I talk. And they’re always wrong.”
Highly evocative and curiously inspirational, this film goes through gripping motions that only strengthen as the film goes on. And while it’s a slow ride, the pacing feels just right with a perfectly forgiving runtime. Not to mention excellent and, most importantly, convincing performances by the entire cast. And of course, we have Philip Seymour Hoffman turn in a true performance, one that shows him accomplish the greatest challenge and accolade of an actor: convincing us that he IS, in fact, Truman Capote.
