Truman and Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation 12 rating

Creative dual-portrait documentary of Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams, two of the greatest figures in 20th Century American Literature.

Documentary 2021 86 mins

Director: Lisa Immordino Vreeland



This is a story of two of the greatest writers of the past century, Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams who are examined in a dialogue that stretches from their early days of friendship to their final, unsparing critiques of each other.

Jim Parsons as Capote and Zachary Quinto as Williams gives life to the dialogue and a physicality to their relationship; two literary icons who embody the present more than the subjects they confronted in their works.
