Jackson, Mississippi, 1964. When his wife kicks him out, respectable dentist Bill Perch (Ed Harris) moves into the seedy Jacksonian Motel. There, his downward spiral is punctuated by encounters with his teenage daughter (Juliet Brett), a gold-digging motel employee (Glenne Headly), a treacherous bartender (Bill Pullman), and his now-estranged wife (Amy Madigan). Revolving around the night of a murder, The Jacksonian, brimming with suspense and dark humor, unearths the eerie tensions and madness in a town poisoned by racism.
