Storyline

A young man in the 1940s raises a family in Alabama after his wife leaves him for an Englishman and moves to England. When the wife dies, she leaves a request to be brought back to Alabama to be buried, and at that point the man hasn't seen her in nearly 30 years. The two families - her original family she abandoned and her English family - meet and make an attempt to adjust to each other, with uneven results. Written by alfiehitchie

Skip Caldwell: You hear that?

Skip Caldwell: Silence. That's what was hard to get used to. It still is sometimes. It's kind of like floating on a peaceful lake with a tornado in your head or something.

Pitiful
11 April 2015 | by (Lost Angels CA) – See all my reviews

This slow, slow, slow film is painful -- no, excruciating -- to get through. Who the hell gave this script a green light??? Didn't anyone read it?? Who thought it was a good idea? And more importantly - who the hell thought it would make a profit??!!

"Jayne Mansfield's Car" is yet one more agonizing example that the lunatics are running the asylum. God knows how it was financed. I guess if you tell someone Robert Duvall is going to go in front of the cameras, the wallets magically open. Billy Bob Thornton has done some good work in the past, but this is far from it. From the murky "Godfather" wannabe lighting to the painfully slow watching-paint-dry editing, this is a slow-going and dreary experience. More like an endurance test than a film. Total waste of time and effort for all involved.
