Summary, etc.:
Answered Prayers was meant to be Truman Capote's greatest masterpiece, an epic novel of New York City's glittering jet-set society, following his smashing success with Breakfast at Tiffany's and In Cold Blood. Instead, it sparked his downfall. Through access to never-before-heard audio archives and interviews with Capote's friends and enemies, including Dick Cavett, Lauren Bacall, Norman Mailer and André Leon Talley, this documentary reveals the rise and fall of America's most iconic gay writer.
