Subject: Actually, it wasn't overlooked because of that. "Infamous" came out well over a year after Capote, and was a major flop. Why was such a film made, and why was it a failure?

Producer felt Capote wasnt "gay" enough.

In reply to: For which Hoffman won an Oscar 's message, "Son Toby Jones played Truman Capote in a film that was somewhat overlooked, due to Phillip Seymour Hoffman playing Capote in another film around the same time" on Wednesday, July 10, 11:36:25am

So the director decided to make Capote more "gay," and the result was a terrible parody of a talented and flawed man. PS Hoffman was sublime at capturing the subtleties of being Capote; Troy Jones was merely a stereotyped caricature.
