Episode Description

He soared to the top of the Hollywood heap after writing, directing, and starring in the 1996 film, Sling Blade. Then he became a Hollywood staple as an onscreen bad boy with a notorious off-screen life that included a tempestuous marriage to Angelina Jolie (during the good times, they reportedly wore vials of each other's blood around their necks). This portrait of Thornton traces his roots to Arkansas and follows him to Hollywood where he spent years toiling in relative obscurity as a bit player before Sling Blade put him on the map and earned him an Oscar.
