A Family Thing
When Arkansas native Earl (Robert Duvall) explores his past, he learns that his real mother was African American -- a shock. What's more, there's a half-brother named Ray (James Earl Jones) living in Chicago. Earl sets out to get to know him and the experience is life changing. Moving from initial anger and confusion to common ground, the relationship builds. Billy Bob Thornton co-writes this drama about the indestructible bonds of family.
