“Burning” is based on the short story “Barn Burning” by author Haruki Murakami. The mystery thriller is about a woman who becomes entangled with two very different men. One man is rich while the other man is a writer who just struggles to get by and make ends meet. A mysterious incident takes place that affects all three in a different way.

It’s veteran director Lee Chang-Dong’s first film since “Poetry”‘ in 2010 and screens at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival in the “In Competition” section.

The film stars Yoo Ah-in, who is probably best known for his roles in “Punch,” “Secret Love Affair,” and the 2015 film, “Veteran.” “Burning” also stars Steven Yeun, who is probably more well-known in the United States due to his role in the mega-popular zombie series “The Walking Dead.” However, Yuen has broken out of his ‘Walking Dead’ past with roles in the recent films “Okja” and “Mayhem.”
