Movie Poster for Jayne Mansfield's Car

Lest you forget, the 'town' in this movie is Cedartown, so I've been keeping my eye open for news of a possible release date. It was in the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, and I'd think that Billy Bob would want to get it out before the end of this year so he'd be eligible for the Oscars. In scouring the web once more today, I found this.

So, it finally has a poster, which led the movie site from which I stole this to hope it would be released soon.

Also found this on an article discussing the cameras used in the film -- good old Main Street, in Cedartown.

In true Hollywood fashion, my guess is that it'll be released on at least a limited basis in this country late this  year. I wonder if there is still some discussion about having some kind of premiere here in Cedartown? If so, it's being kept mum. But then, I'm hardly in the loop for these things!


  1. ...such an odd subject matter for a film. But then if Billy Bob Thornton is involved, I'm not surprised.

  2. Oddly enough, Jayne Mansfield and/or her car are not at all the subject of the film. I have no clue how or if the name ties in. This movie is set in Alabama in the 1970's, is billed as a 'culture clash' in a family. Ex-wife goes to England, marries well, returns to Alabama much later on for funeral or something, and it goes from there.
