A bittersweet meditation on the aftermath of war, Jayne Mansfields Car looks at two families, one Southern & one British, in Alabama in 1969. Brought together by the death of a woman who was married first to Jim Caldwell and then to Kingsley Bedford, the families struggle with long-held resentments, jealousy, fear of growing old and, most poignantly, the tension between three generations of fathers and sons whose notions of manhood are shaped by their exposure to combat, its myths and realities.
