Truman & Tennessee

The work, lives, and personal journeys of iconic American artists Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams coalesce with creative combustion in this innovative dual-portrait documentary. Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland distills the loves, fears, and artistic achievements of these masters via an array of archival materials, film clips, and vibrant voiceover work from Jim Parsons and Zachary Quinto as Capote and Williams, respectively. Packed with pearls of wisdoms and eloquent observations, the film celebrates the sometimes tumultuous friendship of the titular writers through the ages, while honoring the way their queer identity informed their world-renowned artistic achievements and relationships with their family, confidants, and — most significantly — each other.

“Watching this captivating film, especially during Pride month, one can’t help but wonder how these outsized talents would have fared in a more open and embracing society – or would their demons have simply followed them into the 21st century?” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

“Parsons and Quinto sound just enough like the real writers to make this an almost seamless, often revealing and always entertaining look at the two writers.” – Roger Moore, Movie Nation
