TRAILER: The Burning Plain...

Three of the best films I've seen from the past 10 years have one common thing, the screenwriter. Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel were written by Guillermo Arriaga, and now the screenwriter has made his directorial debut. Showing at last years Toronto, Venice, Glasgow, and Seattle Film Festivals, The Burning Plain is similar to his previous writing credits, in that it's an ensemble piece with a two-tiered storyline concerning a mother and daughter who try to form a bond again later in their lives. The buzz hasn't been huge, but the trailer looks quite good, and the pedigree is also quite great, so check out the trailer below!

The Burning Plain is both written and directed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Arriaga, who worked with and wrote Alejandro González Iñárritu's trilogy of Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel, as well as the screenplays for The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada and The Night Buffalo. The film first premiered at the Venice Film Festival late last year and has played at other major film festivals ever since then. Magnolia Pictures will be bringing The Burning Plain to very limited theaters starting on September 18th this year.

Go see something good!
