Jayne Mansfield’s Car: Billy Bob Thornton’s Tale, Back to 1969

Set in a small Alabama town in 1969, “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” is the story of fathers and sons, war and peace, and the turbulent time that changed American society forever.

The tale is propelled by the death of a quirky clan’s long-estranged wife and mother, an event that brings together two very different families for the funeral. But the scars of the past hide differences that continue to have impact, threatening to expose truths that could lead to unexpected and fatal collisions.

As directed by Billy Bob Thornton and co-written by Thornton and Tom Epperson (One False Move), Jayne Mansfield’s Car offers a look at human foibles, hauntig memories and unshakable family bonds.
