Lone Star Achievement in Film Acting Awardee, Billy Bob Thornton returns to directing with an ensemble drama about families and the effects of combat on the complicated relationships between fathers and sons, Jayne Mansfield’s Car looks at two colorful clans in 1969. Brought together by the death of a woman who was married, first to the Alabaman Jim Caldwell and then to the British Kingsley Bedford, her families meet for the first time at the Caldwells’ home with uneasy curiosity. The culture clash of the Sixties, and of the Old World versus the Old South, become a backdrop for the Caldwells’ and the Bedfords’ heartfelt and sometimes hilarious struggles with long-held resentments, family rivalries and secrets, and the memories of war and how it shaped them all.
