"Watch Capote!"
"What Capoteh?"
"Capote, you know the famous author who wrote "In Cold Blood" Okay. "Breakfast at Tiffany's"?"

Perhaps Capote is not as known here as his good friend Harper Lee who wrote "To Kill a Mocking Bird" who's also featured in the movie. When asked by Disney to give a one-sentence testimonial for this movie, mine was "Philip Seymour Hoffman gives an Oscar-worthy performance as the effeminate but likeable Capote."

Give this man the Oscar! But I know he will not win because he is portraying a flawed homosexual man. Childlike voice, fey mannerisms and unconventional behaviour - he nailed it all. While it may be seen as more outward and easy to portray, he dealt with the inner struggles well.

I reviewed this movie on my birthday. Working on your birthday?! No regrets at all. Though Capote may not enjoy rave reviews or box office success, it was an enjoyable experience.

As Truman Capote said (with his fingers adjusting hair), "Sometimes, when I think how good it (his book) could be, "I can hardly breathe." You just hate him and love him at the same time.

Capote - The dark horse for Oscar.
