Movie Info

This drama captures the lives and passions of the Compsons, a once proud Southern family caught in a tragic spiral of loss and misfortune. Based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner author William Faulkner and considered among the 20th century's greatest works, this film encapsulates the universal theme of the death of honor, social injustice and forbidden love.

  • This, Franco's most ambitious project, is his best film by far.

    Sep 12, 2014 | Rating: 4/5
  • Its surfeit of half-baked film-student flourishes and needless cameos occasionally give it an amateur-hour feel. But Franco nonetheless shows improvement over 2013's "As I Lay Dying," and well, it's hard to fault him for trying.

  • Looking at [Franco's] workload, you wonder when the man switches off. Then you go to the films themselves, and find the answer.

    Sep 7, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • James Franco's messy Faulkner adaptation has mature themes.

    Oct 27, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The Sound and the Fury is a step in the right direction for Franco the director, but it still doesn't quite suggest he's on the verge of something truly great. Yet, at least.

    Nov 17, 2014 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Replete with ludicrous buck-toothed prosthetics, plenty eyeball rolling, grunting and drooling, Franco goes further on the 'full retard' front than any actor in film history.
