As I Lay Dying is a 2013 American drama film directed and co-written by and starring James Franco, based on the William Faulkner novel of the same name published in 1930. The story is based on the loss of a mother and the struggles in which the family suffers by going the distance to her burial grounds in her home town.James Franco decided to write a screenplay of the novel with a fellow Yale graduate student, Matt Rager. The novel As I Lay Dying was described as a story impossible to be transformed into a film due to the multi-narrative voices within it.Franco saw this as a challenge and was able to depict the many voices, through choices of styling through camera edits. Faulkner told this story in a chorus of voices: 15 narrators in the 59 chapters.To locate an equivalent for the novel’s polyphonal scheme, Franco in relation to this decision employs the use of narrative expressed through dialogue and voice overs.Based on the 1930 classic by Faulkner, it is the story of the death of Addie Bundren and her family's quest to honor her wish to be buried in the nearby town of Jefferson.
