Review Capote

CC-by-sa ethify.org & literature

The film Capote is based on the book “In Cold Blood” that Truman Capote wrote in 1966, it’s a novel, which detailed the horrible murder that shocked the little town of Holcomb in Kansas. The murder happened in 1959; the Clutter family was the victims here, a Kansas farmer, his wife and two kids.

You would think what does this have to do with ethics? This was just the beginning for the writer Truman Capote. If the movie Capote would be mentioned it would bring up disturbing ethical questions. This is because to get his book to be such a best seller, he went through a lot of things that would be unethical to anyone with a sense of ethics.
