'Burn This' tells the story of four New Yorkers whose lives are uprooted by a young dancer's accidental death. Set in downtown New York in the raw and gritty 1980s, the combustible drama explores the spiritual and emotional isolation of the dangerous, sexy, raw, and demanding Pale (Adam Driver) and the modern dancer Anna (Keri Russell), and their tempestuous relationship after the two iconoclasts are brought together in the wake of a life-changing personal tragedy. Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer.
See it if you want to see Adam Driver show his acting chops as a somewhat comedic Stanley Kowalski. You'll hang on every word of his opening rant!
Don't see it if you don't want to be dismayed by Keri Russell's weaker performance. It was hard to believe her attraction to Driver's character.
