James Franco, man of many hats, pulls double-duty directing and starring in his adaptation of William Faulkner’s classic novel The Sound and the Fury.

If you skipped the book—because Spark Notes—let us remind you its about the Compson family who has fallen from societal grace as told through the family’s different members.

The clip above proves the film's intensity. Because telling someone they look like a whore almost never goes over well. 

The film’s cast includes Scott Haze, Joey King, Jon Hamm, and Franco’s usual associates, Seth Rogen and Danny McBride. WTF?

Now that's something we want to see.
