Billy Bob Thornton digs at family strife and cultural differences in his latest directorial outing, "Jayne Mansfield's Car"
"Jayne Mansfield's Car" boasts top-notch talent: Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thornton, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon and Frances O'Connor — just to name the award winners and nominees in the lineup.
But the 1960s-set film, directed and co-written by Thornton, amounts to more than the sum of its all-star cast: it tells an honest story about cultural and familial disparities.
Specifcally, the Alabama-based Caldwell family must meet with the British Bedfords to reclaim the body of their deceased mother. Thus ensues a culture clash, a lot of head-butting and, as suggested, a cameo appearance by the late actress' ride.
The question is whether these opposing families can put their differences aside and come together during their time of grief. Check out the trailer below for a dose of the drama (stay tuned for a domestic release date):
