Billy Bob Thornton is back in the director's chair and back in the deep south reminiscent of his award winning  "Sling Blade." "Jayne Mansfield's Car" touches on family and culture clash in the late 1960s.

The story focuses on two sets of families, one from Alabama, and one from England, who's lives intertwine after the death of their matriarch. Thornton is accompanied my a powerhouse cast of performers. Robert Duvall plays the patriarch of the Alabama family, with John Hurt leading the British clan. Robert Patrick, Frances O'Connor, Kevin Bacon, Robert Stevenson and Tippi Hedren.

Thornton also co-wrote the script with Tom Epperson. Here's Indiewire's review from last year's Berlin International Film Festival. Check out the new trailer:
