Jayne Mansfield’s Car boasts an incredible ensemble cast that includes Thornton,
Robert Duvall, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon, Robert Patrick and Frances O’Connor.  Set in 1969 in rural Alabama, much if it is a father-son tale about three veterans of World War II and their dad (Duvall), a tight-lipped WW I vet.  Their lives, already wrought with tension, are thrown into disarray when a British family, led by Hurt, arrives for a visit.

“The film refuses to fit into any genre and encompasses heavy drama alongside
social commentary and Thornton’s nuanced sense of humor.  Numerous scenes
made me laugh not because they delivered clear punchlines, but because they
reminded me of characters from my own small-town Southern family.” - Whitney Matheson, USA Today
