Jean-Paul Kelly creates a shot-by-shot re-enactment of the Maysles brothers' 1966 documentary With Love from Truman, drawing parallels with its subject Truman Capote's grandiloquent pronouncements about the genre of the "non-fiction novel."

Jean-Paul Kelly's elegant and enigmatic The Innocents is partially constructed around a shot-by-shot re-enactment of segments from the Maysles brothers' 1966 documentary With Love from Truman, with Kelly ingeniously recasting Capote's desire as the speaker. With its own formal predilections, the film succeeds in drawing parallels with the legendary author's brazen statements about form and style.
