Growing up sometimes can be a pain in the ass. Having to accept disgusting jobs with idiotic co-workers just in order to pay the bills and making the attempt of having a decent living. It is easy to think that nowadays society can make us all go a little bit crazy sometimes. And I am not surprised to see in the newspapers how somebody totally flips and does the unthinkable. That being robbing a random business with the threat of violence, or taking over that adverse situation applying your own distorted rules of justice and morality. And those are the premises of what is going on in Burn (2019).
In the movie, when a gas station is held at gunpoint by a desperate man in need of cash, a lonely and unstable gas station attendant, tired of being overshadowed by her more outgoing co-worker, finds an opportunity to make a connection with the robber. But if one didn’t see the unexpected coming, sometimes things take bizarre paths.
Burn (2019) is the debut feature film of Chinese-born filmmaker Mike Gan, who has also authored the screenplay. The movie is starred by Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Suki Waterhouse, Harry Shum Jr., Josh Hutcherson, Shiloh Fernandez, James Devoti, John D. Hickman, Wayne Pyle, Rob Figueroa and Winter-Lee Holland.
Burn (2019) is scheduled to have a limited theatrical release and be available on Video on Demand the 23rd of August, 2019. Here you can watch the official trailer for the movie:
