Ryan Murphy‘s anthology series Feud returns with its highly anticipated second season, delving into the intricate relationships between Truman Capote and his group of wealthy socialite friends, aptly nicknamed ‘The Swans.’ This season titled Capote vs. The Swans takes inspiration from real-life events and creates a fictionalized account of the aftermath of Capote’s controversial novel Answered Prayers.
Played by Tom Hollander, known for his roles in Pride & Prejudice and The Night Manager, Capote is depicted as suffering from a severe writer’s block. However, his entanglement with the upper echelons of society grants him access to the inner circle of the city’s wealthiest women.
The Swans, played by an ensemble cast including Demi Moore, Chloë Sevigny, Molly Ringwald, Diane Lane, Calista Flockhart, and Naomi Watts, become the inspiration for Capote’s new book. The manuscript, aptly named Answered Prayers, becomes a sensation when leaked chapters expose the private affairs of the rich and privileged.
The fallout from the publication leads to a rift between Capote and his Swans. They feel betrayed by his use of their secrets for personal gain and vow to seek revenge. The series, directed by Gus Van Sant, Jennifer Lynch, and Max Winkler, takes artistic license to deliver a sensational and at times tragic account of real-life women such as Babe Paley, Lee Radziwill, Slim Keith, C.Z. Guest, and Ann Woodward.
This captivating story has been previously explored in biopics featuring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Toby Jones. However, this season offers a fresh perspective on Capote’s downfall and expulsion from New York society. It draws inspiration from various sources, including Laurence Lerner’s Capote’s Women and Jon Robin Baitz’s thought-provoking discussions on misogyny in Capote’s writing.
Feud Season 2: Capote vs. The Swans promises to capture viewers’ imaginations with its blend of historical truth and artistic interpretation, delivering another captivating installment in Ryan Murphy’s acclaimed anthology series.
