Truman & Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation (2021) – Documentary

Truman & Tennessee: An Intimate Conversation is a story of two of the greatest writers of the past century examined in a dialogue that stretches from their early days of friendship to their final, unsparing critiques of each other. They lived parallel lives and struggled with a lifelong pursuit of creativity, self-doubt, addiction, and success.

STORY

“This is a story of two of the greatest writers of the past century, Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams who are examined in a dialogue that stretches from their early days of friendship to their final, unsparing critiques of each other. Giving life to the dialogue and physicality to their relationship, Jim Parsons is Capote and Williams is Zachary Quinto; both are icons and yet anti-heroes, in an era that has become glutted with one-named celebrities: it’s time for a return to the originals. The two men themselves, as they lived their own life stories, embody the present more than the subjects they confronted in their works.” www.dogwoofsales.com
