A new documentary about Truman Capote’s last and unfinished novel will make its way to a wider audience this fall.
The Capote Tapes, which debuted at a film festival in 2019 but then hit delays with the COVID-19 pandemic, will be out in theaters September 10 and digitally October 26, reports Literary Hub.
It focuses on the incomplete book, Answered Prayers, and includes never-before-seen interviews with Capote’s friends (and ex-friends), including Lauren Bacall, Norman Mailer, Andre Leon Talley, and Gore Vidal.
While you wait for the movie, you can watch the trailer below and also read the published (though, of course, incomplete) version of Answered Prayers to see why the Capote friends depicted in it were so upset about it.
