Infamous is a 2006 American drama film based on the 1997 book by George Plimpton Truman Capote: In Which Various Friends, Enemies, Acquaintances, and Detractors Recall His Turbulent Career. It covers the period from the late 1950s through the mid-1960s, during which Truman Capote researched and wrote his bestseller In Cold Blood.
Capote is played by Toby Jones. Sandra Bullock, Daniel Craig, Lee Pace, and Jeff Daniels also have featured roles, with a supporting cast that includes Sigourney Weaver and Hope Davis and a song performance by Gwyneth Paltrow.
According to writer/director Douglas McGrath in his DVD commentary, many of the scenes in Infamous occurred only in McGrath's imagination, most notably a dramatic sexual encounter between Capote and inmate Perry Smith (played by Craig).
