What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this mature drama concerns Truman Capote's research into multiple murders in Kansas, 1959, for his book In Cold Blood. It includes images of bloody bodies, crime scene photos, discussions of the means of killing (knife and shotgun), allusions to rape and racist assumptions (before the killers are caught, someone suggests "Mexicans" committed the crime). Characters drink and smoke, at parties, at home, and alone. Capote is flamboyantly gay, discusses gay relationships, discusses sex (including a phone conversation with friend/writer James Baldwin, with references to interracial, interfaith sex), and some cursing (one use of the f-word). Capote tells a story about hearing of his mother's death
