The Burning Plain

Ensemble drama that follows several characters in different times and places: an Orgeon woman trying to reconcile with her mother after a traumatic childhood; two teenagers trying to save their parents in a New Mexico border town; a young girl on a journey of redemption; and a couple dealing with their extramarital affair. Charlize Theron, Kim Basinger and John Corbett star in this richly thematic, psychologically intense production from writer and director Guillermo Arriaga ("Babel").
