IMDB: “John Maxwell’s critically acclaimed one-man show based on the life of William Faulkner is filmed before a live audience in Faulkner’s home town of Oxford, Mississippi. In a rare visit to Faulkner’s stud, we get a glimpse of the literary giant and Nobel laureate’s character and psyche. The story is set in 1950, as Faulkner ruminates on his past and ponders if he should indeed accept the Nobel Prize For Literature that was awarded to him.”
