Jayne Mansfield's Car

With a premiere at the Berlin Film Festival imminent, we now have our first look at the huge ensemble cast in Billy Bob Thornton's latest effort behind the camera with post-war family drama "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

From left to right, we have Robert Duvall (who has been talking up the project for years), Robert Patrick, John Hurt, Ray Stevenson, Marshall Allman, Thornton himself, an unknown male, Katherine LaNasa, an unknown female, a very interesting-looking Kevin Bacon, Shawnee Smith, young unknown lead John Patrick Amedori in front another unknown female with Frances O'Connor at the end. Put simply, a very interesting ensemble of talent.

What's the story all about then? “It’s about a guy in between WWI and WWII who raises a family after his wife left him for an Englishman and moved to England," Duvall previously revealed of the plot. "When the wife dies, she asks to be brought back to Alabama to be buried, and at that point the character hasn’t seen her in 20 or 30 years. The two families — her original family she abandoned and her English family — meet and then things get really interesting.”

The film unveils at Berlin in competition this Monday. [BerlinFilmFest]
