Magnolia Pictures just sent over a beautiful poster for their new film “The Burning Plain”, starring Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger.  The film is described as a “romantic mystery” but – because it was written and directed by Guillermo Arriaga (“21 Grams”, “Babel”) – I think it’s safe to assume that those two adjectives could not possibly sum up all of the complexity and nuance that Arriaga is able to pack into two hours.  “The Burning Plain” will be available on VOD beginning August 21st and in a limited theatrical run on September 18th.   Follow the jump to read the film’s synopsis and to get a better look at the lovely back of Ms. Theron…

From writer/director Guillermo Arriaga comes “The Burning Plain”, a romantic mystery about a woman on the edge who takes an emotional journey back to the defining moment of her life. Oscar-winner Charlize Theron plays Sylvia, a beautiful restaurant manager whose cool, professional demeanor masks the sexually charged storm within. When a stranger from Mexico confronts her with her mysterious past, Sylvia is launched into a journey through space and time that inextricably connects her to these disparate characters, all of whom are grappling with their own romantic destinies.

In Mexico, a young motherless girl lives happily with her father and his best friend until a tragic accident changes it all. In the New Mexico border town of Las Cruces, two teenagers find love in the aftermath of their parents’ sudden deaths. In an abandoned trailer, a housewife, Gina (Oscar-winner Kim Basinger), embarks on a passionate affair that will put Sylvia and the others on a collision course with the explosive power of forbidden love.

THE BURNING PLAIN is the directorial debut of Oscar-nominated screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga (“Babel”, “21 Grams”, “Amores Perros”, “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada”).
