Oscar-nominated writer Douglas McGrath (Emma, Bullets Over Broadway) chronicles the story behind In Cold Blood, celebrated author Truman Capote's greatest work, a book that would bring him fame, respect and, ultimately, lead to his destruction--Infamous. Early 1960s. Capote (Toby Jones--Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) travels to Kansas to research the cold-blooded murders of a local family. But what begins as an investigative journey with longtime friend Harper Lee (Sandra Bullock--Crash), who was soon to publish the Pulitzer Prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird, leads to something altogether darker when Capote develops an intense and complex relationship with one of the murderers (Daniel Craig--Munich). Also featuring an all-star cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, Isabella Rossellini and Sigourney Weaver as some of the wealthy, famous and powerful people allured by Capote's genius and wit.

Critics Consensus: Though comparisons with last year's Capote may be inevitable, Infamous takes a different angle in its depiction of the author, and stands up well enough on its own.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this film isn't for kids. It showcases difficult concepts and images, including mass murder, rape, homosexuality and homophobia, and the sensationalizing effects of media. Images include the Clutter family crime scene (bloody bodies and furniture), as well as several reenactments of violence: shooting, smothering, and an unnerving scene in a prison cell, where inmate threatens visitor. Execution by hanging shown explicitly, as is a passionate, illicit kiss in a prison cell. Characters make repeated references to sex and rape, some joking, some menacing. Characters smoke lots of cigarettes and drink often. Both prisoners and Manhattan socialites use foul language ("f--k" most frequently).
