The-Sound-and-the-Fury-5-webLooking at the cast, you might assume a new comedy is coming out. But this film is just the opposite. James Franco, Seth Rogen and Danny McBride star in the adaptation of the classic William Faulkner novel The Sound and the Fury. 

The drama takes a look back into the early 20th century and the lives of the Compsons, a family living down South in Mississippi. Franco stars as Benjy, a young man with cognitive disabilities that the family is ashamed of. Jacob Loeb, Ahna O’Reilly and Scott Haze star as Benjy’s older siblings with Tim Blake Nelson as their father.

Even though Rogen and McBride don’t have serious roles in the film it is fascinating to see them take on more serious roles and in period clothing to boot. Academy Award nominee James Franco directed the film, which has us wondering if he has a twin. How else could he be so prolific?
