Directed by Oscar-nominated James Franco from a screenplay by James Franco and Matt Rager, AS I LAY DYING is adapted from the 1930 classic American novel by William Faulkner. The story chronicles the Bundren family as they traverse the Mississippi countryside to bring the body of their deceased mother, Addie, to her hometown for burial. Addie's husband and their five children leave the farm on a carriage with her coffin, each affected by Addie's death in a profound and different way. Their road trip to Jefferson, some forty miles away, is disrupted by every antagonistic force of nature or man: flooded rivers, injury and accident, a raging barn fire, and not least of all -- each individual character's personal turmoil and inner commotion, which threatens the fabric of the family more than any outside force.
As I Lay Dying opens in theaters October 11, 2013.
