3. IGNITE Movie Night

Ever wanted to get inside the mind of an acclaimed author? In Capote (2005), the late Academy-Award winning actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman presents a groundbreaking performance as Truman Capote. This biographical film follows the events that transpired during the writing of Capote’s groundbreaking non-fiction book In Cold Blood (1966).


Hoffman’s Capote is the most magnificently unsympathetic figure.

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


Philip Seymour Hoffman’s riveting central performance guides a well-constructed retelling of the most sensational and significant period in author Truman Capote’s life.

“Capote” unflinchingly faces the moral abyss at the heart of the journalistic enterprise.
