Movie Summary
This 40-minute TV dramatization of William Faulkners Barn Burning stars Tommy Lee Jones as the truculent head of the Snopes family. Jones has a tendency to burn down the barns of local landowners whove incurred his displeasure. His son Shawn Willington wants no part of this vengeful practice, but is bound by loyalty to his family. Adapted for television by Horton Foote, Barn Burning was originally presented in tandem with a TV version of Mark Twains The Man Who Corrupted Hadleyburg. Both dramas debuted on March 17, 1980, as part of PBSs American Short Story anthology. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
