Even Tom Hollander Felt Pressure Holding Court for the Swans

“You know they’re all interesting people themselves, but you have all the lines in the scene.”

The pairing of creative lead and subject for FX’s Feud: Capote vs. the Swans could have simply combusted into a dramatic flurry of feathers if it weren’t for the performances: a flock of iconic actresses as the high-society “It” girls on the end-of-the-mid-century Upper East Side and Tom Hollander as the odd duckling among them, equal parts record-keeper, confidant, tableside entertainment, and saboteur. Capote has been done before, but Feud skips past the In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany’s eras to zero in on the years and relationships that led to his death and an unfinished final work, Answered Prayers. These relatively unexamined grounds give Hollander room to make Capote his own, portraying the slide from his highs ( the Black and White Ball) to last moments racked by alcoholism.
