The brilliant work, personal struggles, and cultural impact of iconic American writers Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams explodes onto the screen in this innovative dual-portrait documentary.

Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland masterfully collages a wealth of archival material, including dishy talk show appearances with Dick Cavett and David Frost, with clips from some of the duo’s most memorable movie adaptions: A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and In Cold Blood. Featuring vibrant voiceover work by award-winning actors Jim Parsons (Capote) and Zachary Quinto (Williams), the film is dripping with wit and wisdom. It is a celebration of both men’s fearless candor and often tumultuous friendship that honors how their identity as gay Southerners informed their timeless artistic achievements and relationships with family, colleagues, confidants, and – most significantly – each other.

“An immersive portrait of literary icons, friends, and rivals… a creative way into the ubiquitous figures.”
– INDIEWIRE

“A fascinating account of a loving but troubled relationship… succeeds beautifully in providing a revealing look at their troubled psyches.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Takes their great talents as a given and happily refuses to sensationalize their struggles… the film succeeds in bringing these remarkable figures a bit closer to us.”
