    I also noticed the dirty fingernails and mentioned it to my husband who, of course, didn't notice it. I am guessing it is a Phil trait and not a Truman trait. As an immaculately put together gay man, it seems quite uncharacteristic that Truman would have dirty fingernails. This was a noticeable "lack of attention to detail" by the makers of this, otherwise excellent, film.

    Re: Capote

    It is hard to imagine that a film of this quality would overlook Hoffman's dirty fingernails in all those close-ups. It would seem that this was intentional indicating that Capote actully had dirty nails and the film wanted to remain true to Capote's habits. But, if this is so, wouldn't you think the filmmakers might have overlooked this very unimportant aspect of his character since it in no way brought anything to the role played by Hoffman. I was disgusted by it even if it was true and doubly disgusted by it if it was not true.

    Does anyone have the answer?
