“Answered Prayers” was meant to be Truman Capote’s greatest masterpiece, an epic portrait of New York’s glittering jet-set society. Instead, it sparked his downfall. Through never-before-heard audio archives and interviews with Capote’s friends and enemies, “The Capote Tapes” reveals the rise and fall of America’s most iconic gay writer. Filmwax welcomes first time filmmaker Ebs Burnough to the show. The film opens today, Friday, September 10th in NYC and LA, then goes wider on 9/17. Visit the film’s official website for details about screenings near you.
Also, first time filmmaker Jonah Feingold stops by to discuss his movie, “Dating & New York” which also opens today in select cities and wherever you can rent it digitally. After meeting on the dating app Meet Cute and having a one-night stand, two single 20-something New Yorkers Milo (Jaboukie Young-White) and Wendy (Francesca Reale) draw up a ‘Best Friends with Benefits’ contract to avoid the pitfalls of a relationship, but complications ensue. The classic romantic comedy gets a millennial update, complete with fast-paced dialogue, a cast of up-and-coming comedians and perpetual affection for one of the most romantic cities in the world.
