Burn centres around the deciedly odd Melinda (Tilda Cobham-Hervey, above), whose petrol station is held up at gunpoint by a desperate man in need of cash – Billy (Josh Hutcherson). Melinda is a lonely and unstable station attendant, and tired of being overshadowed by her more outgoing co-worker, Sheila (Suki Waterhouse), and finds an opportunity to make a connection with the robber.
The trailer gets more weird the longer it goes on, but I’m really looking forward to this.
Burn is released in the US on August 23rd, but as of yet there’s no UK release date.
