One of the year's most acclaimed films and South Korea's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2019 Academy Awards®, "Burning" debuts on digital January 29 and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD March 5 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Based on the short story "Barn Burning" by Haruki Murakami, "Burning" is a psychological tale of all-consuming jealousy that tells the story of three individuals and a mystery that shows no one is truly as they seem. The film is certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with an impressive score of 95% and an average score of 8.7 from over 100 outlets. A special bonus is the behind-the-scenes featurette "About the Characters" where viewers will take a deep dive into the characters in "Burning" and the actors who portray them. The film stars Steven Yeun ("Okja", "The Walking Dead"), Yoo Ah-in ("Six Flying Dragons") and Jeon Jong-seo making her big screen debut.
"Burning" is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jongsu (Yoo Ah-in), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Haemi (newcomer Jeon Jong-seo), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibilities, and Ben (Steven Yeun, "The Walking Dead", Sorry To Bother You), a wealthy and sophisticated young man who returns with her from a recent trip. When Jongsu learns of Ben's mysterious hobby and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale.
Country of Origin: South Korea
"Burning" has a runtime of approximately 148 minutes and is not rated.
