Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams were friends for the best part of 40 years. Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s poignant documentary captures the complexity of a relationship that journeyed from fond regard to bitchy disdain and back again. A wealth of archive material confirms the two literary giants as central to American cultural life in the 20th century. Skirmishes with Dick Cavett and David Frost reveal their wit and vulnerability. Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek) voice their words in a celebration of what the two men achieved and what it cost them. 

Screening with a recorded Q&A with director Lisa Immordino Vreeland.

Told in their own words, this poignant documentary serves as a reminder of what eloquent, witty, self-aware and sensitive individuals they were.

Screen Daily

Succeeds beautifully in providing a revealing look at their troubled psyches.
