Love It or Leave It: Theron, Basinger in The Burning Plain

The Burning Plain is described as "a drama with a two-tiered storyline concerning a mother (Kim Basinger) and daughter (Charlize Theron) who try to form a bond after the young woman's difficult childhood," and the new trailer for the Sept. 18 release certainly includes plenty of drama. Drama, drama, drama. There appear to be some criss-crossing love affairs and lots of mother-daughter angst.

On the one hand, the movie was written and directed by Babel's Guillermo Arriaga and there seems to be plenty of dark, slow-boiling tension throughout. Having said that, though, I had to remind myself to pay attention to the trailer, as I found my mind wandering.

How do you think The Burning Plain looks? Promising? Or not so much?

I saw this at a film festival awhile back and its really good. If you liked babel or 21 grams or amores perros then you'll like this. Don't judge the movie by the trailer, it doesn't do it justice.

it might be worth renting, but i wouldn't spend $10 to go see it in the theater.
