Critics have called "Jayne Mansfield's Car" Thornton's best work as a writer/director since "Slingblade."
A story of fathers and sons, war and peace, and the turbulent time that changed America forever, "Jayne Mansfield's Car" is set in a small Alabama town in 1969, as the death of a quirky clan's long-estranged wife and mother brings together two very different families for the funeral.
But the scars of the past hide differences that tear them apart exposing truths that could lead to the most unexpected collision of all.
The film opens at the Sundance Cinemas Sunset 5 in Los Angeles on September 13, 2013.
