Author Truman Capote (a bravura turn by Toby Jones) travels to Kansas with his friend, "To Kill a Mockingbird" author Nelle Harper Lee (Sandra Bullock), after the brutal murder of the wealthy Cutter family in 1959, and decides to write the nonfiction novel that became "In Cold Blood" by interviewing the townspeople, the authorities (Jeff Daniels), and the killers themselves (Daniel Craig and Lee Pace). The similarities and differences between this version (by writer-director Douglas McGrath), with more humor and greater scope, and director Bennett Miller's "Capote" (made at the same time) are interesting. It also boasts a starry supporting cast (Gwyneth Paltrow, Sigourney Weaver, Hope Davis, Isabella Rossellini and Juliet Stevenson) as his high-society friends back in New York. Some gay elements involving Capote and one of the killers, innuendo, discreet but strong re-creation of the murders, some grisly images, two hangings, rough and crude language and expressions, an irreverent remark, domestic violence, and abortion and suicide references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling.
