Set in Mississippi at the turn of the 20th century, The Sound and the Fury portrays the decline and fall of the Compsons, a once proud, aristocratic Southern family. Haunted by secrets and betrayals that have tarnished the family name, the Compson children’s unique narratives unfold in the juxtaposition of three Compson brothers’ perspectives: man-child Benjy; sensitive, melancholic Quentin; and cold, calculating Jason—gradually intertwining the fate of the lone Compson sister in the process. Translated from the famously challenging experimental prose of William Faulkner’s classic novel into the language of cinema, The Sound and the Fury offers, through this single family’s history, a meditation on the relationship between time, memory, and history. Discussion with actor Scott Haze and producer Lee Caplin
