The directorial debut from the screenwriter of Babel and 21 Grams, The Burning Plain, is, like his other films, a ponderous, politically freighted drama which jumps disorientingly from country to country, from language to language, and from time period to time period, before its storylines dovetail at the end. Charlize Theron is a sexually voracious, emotionally withdrawn restaurant manager in grey, rainy Oregon (a locale which looks just as uninviting here as it did in last week's Wendy and Lucy). Kim Basinger is a desperate housewife having a tender affair in New Mexico. Also in New Mexico, two teenagers bond after the deaths of their parents. And in Mexico, a girl goes in search of the mother she has never known.

At least half the secret to being hailed as a style leader lies in simply being a little unexpected with one's fashion choices.

Paul Haggis's In the Valley of Elah explores the consequences of a tough patrimony, which is all the more desolate for being nobly intended. It has a quite towering performance at its centre. Tommy Lee Jones, his face as iconically craggy as Clint's, plays a Vietnam vet and former military policeman, Hank Deerfield, whose son, recently returned from duty in Iraq, has gone missing.
