FWIW, Joe Stalin died two days before I was born, as did Prokofiev.

I was 6 years old when the events that triggered the Truman Capote book “In Cold Blood” took place. My wife was not yet born, so she was really unfamiliar with the subject matter of the movie “Capote”, which we saw yesterday FOR FREE, thanks to the generosity of a local realtor. (We could have seen anything playing at the Spectrum theater.) Carol said that it was a very good film, but disturbing, and she’s not sure she’s glad see saw it. I was more familiar with the subject matter, so I anticipated certain of the more graphic scenes. Not only was Catherine Keener, and especially Philip Seymour Hoffman deserving of their Oscar nominations, but the screenplay was gripping.
